Now Debt-Free, Beulah Looks to Future Ministry
God performed a miracle through Beulah Baptist. This month the church paid off debt it had carried for 18 years, and the congregation is now looking forward to what other miracles God has in store. According to Pastor Cameron DeBrew, Beulah was a smaller church with regular people on regular salaries in the midst of a pandemic when God showed them what was possible if they could just achieve financial freedom.
“Our leadership and congregation began praying earnestly that God would take the debt from us. I prayed that it would happen in His time, but sooner rather than later if it was His will,” DeBrew says.
