Finsaas Hall History

Lois Johnston Finsaas came to Bethany in 1948 and was part of the first class in the college of missions. She married Joseph Finsaas in 1953 and together they served the Lord in Tanakpur, U. P. India with Good Shephard Agricultural Mission. This mission trained students in God’s word as it applied to agricultural and homemaking. In 1958, Lois contracted cerebral malaria and passed away on the field quickly thereafter. She left a legacy of total commitment to the Lord and His will of reaching the world for Christ.

In a letter written after her death, Joe wrote:

“I’m beginning to realize that God never called
Lois and me to India to teach these people how to live,
but rather how to die.”

Berg Hall History

In the early days of Bethany Fellowship, three sisters from South Dakota were transformed by the life-giving Message of the Cross and dedicated themselves for missionary service. In the late 1940’s they went to three separate fields and collectively spend 80 years as foreign missionaries: Thea to Lucknow, North India; Ruth to Guinea Bissau & Ghana, West Africa and also to Vietnam; and Marge to Liberia, West Africa.

They focused on teaching Bible classes and life skills, as well as giving quality leprosy and eye care. These sisters were among the first fruits of an audacious goal embraced by Bethany Chapel in early 1944 to train send and support 100 missionaries.

Shelling Hall History

Michael and Janice Shelling graduated from Bethany College of Missions in 1982. They served the Lord through Youth With a Mission among the minority tribes in Northern Luzon, the Philippines. Mike and Janice were planning to move from Baguio City to the village of Besao near the town of Sagada, Mountain Province to begin church planting when they were tragically martyred. They left behind their 3-month-old son, Jonathan, and 2-year-old daughter, Melissa. Marked by their gentle, peace-loving ways, Mike and Janice had a passion for reaching the Filipino people with the love of Jesus.
