Meet Our Team

Betty Bacon, MAM

Global Program Coordinator & Assistant Professor

Department: Church & Ministry Leadership

Office Location: Online

God has given me diverse opportunities to work in Christian ministry, specializing in youth and women’s ministry and Christian education for the past decade. I have pursued making meaningful impacts on individuals’ personal and spiritual growth through Christian education, one-on-one mentoring, as a guest speaker at conferences and events, and through guiding international student trips. I am deeply grateful that my ministry journey also includes serving on a leadership team in a Christian non-profit social services agency, bringing the hope of love of the gospel of Jesus Christ to families living in rural poverty. Within my local church, I develop and lead Bible studies and programs for youth groups, squadron spouses during deployments, and women’s ministry, fostering Biblical literacy, spiritual growth, and authentic community.
