Meet The Team
Branch Director - Rapid City
Welcome to Bethany Christian Services of Western South Dakota and Cheyenne! It is my privilege to serve as branch director in Cheyenne, Rapid City and Sioux Falls. I have worked in this field for more than 30 years and love the work and ministry of this agency. Whether it is the services we provide to adoptive families or the support and counsel we provide to expectant parents, all of this is done with genuine compassion and care by our staff. I am also excited to have Safe Families for Children™ as an active and growing ministry in our branch. Thank you for taking the time to visit us and we look forward to assisting you.
Assistant Branch Director - Rapid City
Vanessa Mader joined Bethany Christian Services in 2014 and now serves as the assistant branch director. She enjoys walking alongside people as they begin their adoption journey, supporting families the entire time. She has a heart for both clients and staff and has witnessed the fact that Bethany’s mission statement is more than words on a wall but rather a way of life.
Pregnancy Counselor and Adoption Specialist BSW - Cheyenne
In my short time here at Bethany so far, I have only grown in my respect and passion for this agency. As a zealous child advocate, I love working for an agency where the child is front and center; I am completely aligned with Bethany’s mission statement and vision. With my extensive history working with children in the foster care system, I love devoting my days to empowering people to provide for their children so that children can remain in families instead of in the foster care system.
