Vanessa grew up with the senior leaders, Steve and Lindy, of Bethel Atlanta and went to the same church as them and their family prior to Bethel Atlanta. The summer before Bethel Atlanta starting, Vanessa went to the School of Worship out at Bethel Redding and immediately felt her heart was at home. When she found out that Steve and Lindy were going to be establishing Bethel Atlanta, she knew her heart also felt home with them and at this church. She has been here since day one and has loved every season of watching this ministry and organization grow.
Vanessa graduated Georgia Tech in December of 2011 with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration and a concentration in Human Resources and Marketing. She started full-time on staff as the Human Resources Director in February of 2012. Since then, Vanessa also acquired the role of the Administration Director. She has served to take care of all of the staff and admin for the Bethel Atlanta School of Supernatural Ministry, as well as, the administration team for Bethel Atlanta as a whole. Vanessa has recently had a role change to be the Worship Director. Worship has been a life passion and she has served on several worship teams since she was an early teen. Her heart is to see worship alive as a lifestyle and a response in day to day situations for the Bethel Atlanta family. Vanessa is happily married to Josh Hale (no relation to Steve and Lindy) and they live in Atlanta, GA.
In their free time, they enjoy exploring the city, frequent travel, trying new restaurants, hosting family and friends, and dreaming around entrepreneurial ventures.
