Student Pastor, Paul Martinez

Paul has been a Youth Pastor for 12 years prior to coming and joining our team as Student Pastor

here at Bethel Baptist Church Houston in January of 2020. He is originally from Lytle, Texas a small town

south of San Antonio. While attending college to become a Pediatrician he heard the Lord calling him into

Youth Ministry. God's desire for him became his desire. Paul said, "He has never regretted the Lord's

calling for his life and it brings much joy to him; I am excited for what plans the Lord has for me here

at Bethel and to share the Gospel with so many students and teach them to draw nearer to God." 

 "Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may

receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:16

Office Manager, Jhanely Sanchez

Jhanely Sanchez is the newest addition to our Bethel staff as Office manager. Prior to joining our staff team, 

she worked as an educator for 7 years as an elementary teacher. Towards the end of 2019 she felt a calling

to leave her profession and fully devote herself to the plans of God. She recalls several cases where

Bethel Baptist would appear in her life as a home church.

After 3 years, she continues to actively serve at Bethel and be involved in many outreach events. 

Jhanely believes Bethel Baptist is not just any regular church, but a mission minded church that loves God and looks for opportunities to love on people.  She shares, “I loved teaching and am truly thankful for that season in my life, but Jesus remains to be my saving grace, and this has radically changed me. My desire is to abide by his Holy spirit and know He is always with me. I praise the Lord for His daily mercy and grace”.

Worship Leader, Lorenzo Cordero

Hello, My name is Lorenzo and I am honored and blessed to be the Worship Leader for Bethel Baptist Church.  

I began my music career from an early age as I used to spin records and record sounds and samples for special edits.  I always leaned to the beats of a drum so I became a conga player and drummer in 2002 for a local church.  From there I began to serve in a praise band capacity in several churches before becoming the Worship Leader

here at Bethel in 2014 under the leadership of Jaime Garcia.  Since then, we have seen a tremendous growth

in the style, depth and sound of the current praise band.  I strive to bring praise and worship songs with a strong biblical message based in truth that magnifies God's grace, love and mercy.  My goal is to continue to grow

in service to the Worship aspect of a Sunday Morning Service and looking forward to where God is leading us.  

We welcome all of you to join us every Sunday Morning.
