Our story began in 1954, with six boys living in cardboard boxes. With their parents no longer able to take care of them, Floyd Hipp, a prison evangelist, realized he needed to find a way to help. He opened a home for those six boys on Signal Mountain and our ministry has grown from there. For 60+ years, we have witnessed how Hipp's faith-based approach can help so many young people facing adversity. Bethel is located in beautiful Hixson, TN. We have served over 2000 children through our residential care and fully accredited school, Bethel Christian Academy.
