Hello Bethel family from Joe, Kaitlin, Wynnie and Baby girl #2!


We’re the Penrods, and we’re so honored to be a part of how you are reaching the world with the Gospel. We are so thankful, not only for your partnership, but for the years of spiritual heritage and history we share with you.


Some may not know this, but over 50 years ago Bethel Baptist Church in Ellison Bay was my grandfather Harvey Clark’s first pastorate after seminary. During his time there he married my grandmother Helen and pastored for 2 years. Fast forward to 2018 and in the same chapel where my grandfather preached his first sermons, Kaitlin and I were married. In the subsequent 6 months after our wedding, while attending Bethel, Kaitlin and I became more certain than ever that we were called to full time ministry.

Our call from God is to evangelism, reaching college campuses in the US and the world with the hope of the Gospel.


Think about it, on a major university campus there are 20,000+ people in one place, at one time, the same age, asking the same question—What do I do with this life?


By joining with the Every Nation family of Churches and ministries we have been blessed with the opportunity to work with Dr. Rice Broocks, a major leader around the world in campus ministry for over 40+ yrs with experience planting churches and ministries on campus and in communities across the globe.

NOW is the time to take action reaching the next generation HERE, shoring up the foundations of a nation committed to reaching the world with the Gospel. NOW is the time to revive our land by sending workers into the greatest harvest field in our nation, the college campus.


We are so thankful for your prayers and support as we commit ourselves tirelessly to the work of the Gospel.
