He is committed to bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to the community, and encouraging all to pursue a personal relationship with God.

Pastor Bevelle is a graduate of Westfield High School, and took courses at Birmingham Baptist Bible College.
Prior to accepting the call of Christ, Pastor Bevelle worked with Woodward Iron Company, Cowin Construction Company, and retired from Jim Walters Resources after twenty-six years.
