Members of the Bethel Lutheran Home Foundation Board of Directors are elected to a 3-year term and may serve up to two 3-year terms consecutively. Board seats are filled by members of our owner churches, or they have an interest or affiliation with Bethel Lutheran Home. Several current board members have or had family members who are residents of Bethel and know firsthand the impact of volunteerism and the power of philanthropy on the Bethel community.
