Bethany Labue is married to Stephen and has two beautiful daughters named Morgan and Sicily. She has served on the Communitas team since 2004. She began as a recruiter and coordinator of short-term teams and internships for Communitas. When she moved to Connecticut with her husband's job, she began a missional initiative in their local city. Then Steve's job took them to the city of Catania in Sicily, Italy for 3.5 years. There, she started an Italian faith community. Two incredible leaders (and now Communitas team members) have been raised up to lead that community and far beyond.
Steve's job has now brought them to Chicagoland. Here, Bethany will continue to serve Communitas as the Midwest Director and member of the North American Advancement Team. In addition to coming alongside the leaders in her region, she and her husband are also starting a missional initiative in their town as the Lord directs them.
Bethany has a Masters in Christian Education from Azusa Pacific and has been in ministry since 2002. She loves seeing people encounter Jesus and has a passion for discipleship, wellness, and spiritual formation. Stephen is a Protestant Chaplain and they will be stationed near Chicago at least through 2018.
