We have the vision for the establishment of BETHEL LITERARY INITIATIVE (BETHLIN). The mission statement is “To discover, network and bolster the development of gifted Christian writers, and create a comprehensive, first-rate and wholesomely rewarding Christian literary and publishing landscape in Nigeria and all Africa.” The facets of the initiative include:
- Bethel Writing Challenge (periodic writing contests to awaken latent talents)
- Bethel Writers Network
- Bethel Writing Course
- Bethel Editorial and Literary Service
- Bethel Digest (a handy magazine)
- Bethel Publishers
- Bethel Reading Campaign
It is our expectation that the BETHEL LITERARY INITIATIVE would eventually metamorphose into the BETHEL LITERARY INSTITUTE (BETHLIN).
The BETHEL LITERARY INITIATIVE is one of the two envisioned major arms of the proposed BETHEL FOUNDATION. The other arm is BETHEL COLLEGE, a tuition-free world-class high school in Nigeria.
