Meet our Pastoral Staff

Dr. David Fulp accepted Christ as Savior at the age of five in a Sunday School class on December 11, 1967.  At age seventeen, he answered the call to preach and furthered his education at Liberty University, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree and Master of Divinity degrees.  He continued on to get his Doctor of Theology degree from Clarksville Theological Seminary.  He has served as pastor of churches in Elizabethtown, North Carolina (seven years) and Madison, North Carolina (twenty-one years).  It is Pastor Fulp’s desire to see the lost come to Christ and Christians strengthened through the ministries of Bethel Baptist Church. 
Pastor Fulp and Lisa, his wife, have two grown children in full-time ministry.
Kenneth Prater has been involved with the ministry of Bethel Baptist Church for over 20 years and is currently serving as an Assistant Pastor.  He also served as the Administrator of Rockwell Christian School for many years before moving to the church ministry side where he serves in different capacities. His goal is to encourage believers in their walk with God and to be a help to folks in any way he can.
Ken and his wife, Norma (Sunshine), are blessed to be the parents of four grown children.
“Having grown up in church, I made a profession of faith as a child; however, I did not fully understand what salvation in Christ truly meant. As a teenager, I finally  realized my personal need of the Savior, asked for forgiveness of sins, and accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior.  My life has not been the same since.  Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” After trusting the Lord for salvation in my heart, I learned to trust Him for the path of my life.  The road has been curvy at times, but I am thankful that the path has led me and my family to Bethel Baptist Church. It is true that “…His way is perfect.”
David and his wife, Hannah, are blessed with three children, Isabelle, Calvin and William.
