David Zettlemoyer (Youth Director)

Hey!  My name is David Zettlemoyer, but you can just call me Dave.  I grew up in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania in a crazy yet amazing family.  I am the oldest of six kids, and because my Dad and Mom homeschooled us while I grew up, life never really got boring since my siblings were almost always around to keep me company!  I graduated from Cairn University with a bachelor’s degree in Christian Studies, and I am continuing on at Cairn in pursuit of the Master’s of Divinity.  Here are some other get-to-know-me facts: I am a die-hard New England Patriots fan, I ferociously enjoy playing dodgeball, football, and spikeball, winter is my favorite season, playing board games with my friends and family is one of my favorite pastimes, I drink bread-and-butter pickle juice sporadically, and I love learning about NASA and outer space.  God has given me a heart to love and lead others in following Jesus Christ, and it is a serious joy to be about this mission at Bethany, in the Hatfield community, and beyond.  Now that you’ve kindly taken the time to get to know me better, I would enjoy getting to know you better as well!  Here’s my contact info: (267) 371-0539

Kim Kucas

Kim (updated)Hi, my name is Kim Kucas, and I’m originally from Gettysburg & Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. I am a Certified Career & Technical Education Teacher from Pennsylvania State University. I came to Bethany Bible Fellowship Church around 2002. I gradually started working with the youth group just chaperoning various trips.  I enjoy working with teenagers from all walks of life. So it was fitting that I eventually became a full-fledged youth group leader. I enjoy listening to music, reading and being outdoors. I am married to a wonderful man and we have one son. Our family life is centered on God and my son’s farm animals. I was raised in a family with strong beliefs in God’s love and salvation. I can’t remember a time when God was not part of my life. Without God in our lives many things would not be possible. I love being a youth leader and watching teenagers come to know Christ and grow in their relationship with God. It is my prayer that our youth ministry at Bethany continues to grow and flourish as we reach out to the youth in our communities.

Beth Valerio

Hi, my name is Beth Valerio and I have been attending Bethany Bible Fellowship Church for close to 50 years.  I was born in Shamokin, PA (where my parents were born and raised) and then we eventually moved to Hatfield, PA!  My awesome sister, Leah, was born some years later (bonus baby) and we all attended Bethany BFC and still do!  Anyway, I spent 40 years in Hatfield and then God saw fit to bring a wonderful man into my life, Mike Valerio and his beautiful daughter, Elizabeth.  We married, bought a house in Harleysville and became a family in 2006.  I am a secretary for the Wissahickon School District and plan to eventually retire from there.  I, too, was blessed being raised by Christian parents and was taught the need for Jesus which changed my life at the age of 6.  Church was always a priority in our household.  I attended youth group during my teenage years and eventually was asked to be a youth leader later which I was for 5 years (then got married . . .).  Now I’m back!  God has allowed me to be a part of the Youth Leadership Team at Bethany and I look forward to what God has planned in the future!  My prayer is that we are committed to showing God’s love to all youth by being Godly examples.  Oh, and some personal facts – I am an Eagles fan 1st and then a Flyers fan.  A few of my favorite things to do is binge-watching shows on Netflix, eating hotdogs, Domino’s pizza and laughing.
