Bethesda by the Sea is a ministry initiative of Sons of Issachar Ministries, Inc. (SOI 21), an IRS-approved 501(c)3 charitable organization. Bill & Lynn Lewis are by-faith missionaries who raise their own financial support. 

 How to Donate

Though many similar ministries charge for intensive counseling, Bethesda by the Sea is partially supported by suggested contributions by guests (View Sliding Scale for Suggested Contributions), but more substantially by the tax-deductible donations of faithful donors. No one in ministry who is hurting is turned away due to a lack of financial resources. 

If you would like to help restore and release  struggling ministry leaders so they can return to the front lines, we would be grateful. You may donate in one of three three ways:​
