About Us

Pastors Ray & Gloria Hammond founded Bethel in 1988. Over the past 30 years, Bethel has influenced the greater Boston community and even the world. Our purpose as believers is to fulfill Christ's commission to go into all the world and let people know that God loves us all and has a marvelous plan for our lives. From our Bethel family, to the greater community of Boston, the nation and the world.

Three years after the startup Bethel A.M.E. Church was born, it and its inspirational co-pastor Rev. Dr. Ray Hammond were thrust into the mix of gang violence when, in response to the stabbing of a youth at a funeral for another gang member, they co-founded a movement which Newsweek magazine would later refer to as The Boston Miracle (cover story dated June 1, 1998).

 

Ray and his wife, Gloria White-Hammond, started a church community with a mission to “make a difference in Boston, throughout America and around the world by addressing the needs of the hungry, naked, sick or imprisoned whether they be troubled in mind, body or spirit.” 25 years later that community, in collaboration with public and nonprofit educational, community, governmental and interfaith partners, has initiated more than 20 programs that annually serve around 2300 people in greater Boston and over 4,000 globally.
