HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A national Christian ministry is celebrating 25 years in Hattiesburg.
Bethany Christian Services is a child welfare and adoption ministry. It offers pregnancy testing, counseling to pregnant mothers, foster care, and free adoption services.
The Hattiesburg office opened in 1985 and has helped thousands of people. Over 450 children have been adopted.
Wade and Ramona Wicht said the ministry has helped their family grow.
Bethany had an outstanding reputation nationally as we did our research and learned about that and got to speaking to other adoptive families," said Wade Wicht.
Bethany will hold an anniversary silent auction and benefit banquet as part of their annual fund raising event. It's scheduled for April 27 at the Lake Terrace Convention Center.
