Roop, Phil-Denise 185x185Pastors Phil & Denise Roop – Lead Pastors

Pastor Phil is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God and has been in ministry for over 30 years. Together, Phil and Denise love God, love people, and love the vision God has placed in their hearts to equip God’s people to impact the nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  They served as Bethel’s youth pastors from 1989-1996 and returned to lead our Bethel family in April of 2005.  The Roops have three talented children, a handsome son-in-law, and a beautiful daughter-in-law.   Email: pastorphil@capebethel.org

Butters, Bryan-Tiffany 185x185 web Pastors Bryan & Tiffany Butters – SEMO Master’s Commission Pastors
Bryan and Tiffany Butters moved to Cape Girardeau in May of 2012, where they immediately fell in love with the family at Bethel.  After having previously served in Children’s Ministry for four years in southwest Missouri, their hearts began to beat for discipleship.  Out of obedience to the Lord, they left a successful business career to answer a call to full-time ministry at Bethel in February 2014. Bryan is a licensed minister with the Assemblies of God.  Bryan and Tiffany love to connect with and encourage others to grow, and they are devoted to helping young adults find who they are in Christ.  They have two beautiful little girls, Madison and Emalyn.   Email: semomc@capebethel.org
