Pastors & Staff

Joshua Culver

Senior Pastor

 Joshua Culver is a native Tennessean that has been serving local churches across the Southeastern United States since the mid 90s.  After marrying Rachel Hawkins in 1997 the two committed to minister together in New Orleans, West Georgia, and South Carolina.  Along the way, God blessed the Culvers with the opportunity to work with four great churches and gave them four beautiful children … and yes, they had one kid at each church.
Pastor Joshua’s ministry at Bethlehem began in late 2019.  He brings with him 26 years of pastoral experience and a refreshing love for people.  Pastor Joshua has a preaching style that is insightful, engaging, and humorous.  His personality is casual and playful, but he handles God’s Word with skill and reverence.  We believe you’ll find him, as we have, to be a kind and approachable man that will welcome you with a firm handshake and a big smile. 

Amaya Hall

Worship + Outreach Pastor

Amaya has been a part of the BBC family since 2021, and has a deep and lifelong passion for worship music. She has been involved in worship ministries for 9+ years and has always felt the calling of music ministry on her heart. She deeply values the importance of music ministry, purposed not only to build up the church body, but also to lead and encourage the church body to grow and deepen in their relationship with Jesus Christ. She feels richly blessed in every opportunity to lead believers into the presence of Jesus, and to watch them grow in their freedom of worshiping Him.
Amaya also has a passion for jazz music and completed her B.M. in Jazz Performance at The University of Northern Colorado in 2020. She loves to perform and collaborate with other musicians in the area.
