Since asking Jesus to come into her life at four years of age, Beth has grown in her knowledge of Christian faith and practice and in her relationship with Christ Jesus. She graduated from Moody Bible Institute with a Bachelor of Arts in Youth Ministry and, after a brief stint in youth ministry, spent a few years coaching college women’s basketball. As much as Beth enjoyed sports (and liked to win) she cared more about the holistic lives of the players than about the points on the scoreboard. This God-given passion for people led her back to full-time ministry in the local church.
Beth’s seminary years were spent at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary where she earned an M.Div. and a Th.M. She has served in children’s, student, and music ministries, as well as in contexts of discipleship, teaching, and compassionate care, and has completed a Spiritual Direction certification. Most recently, she served as the Pastor for Congregational Life & Care at First Presbyterian Church-Bethlehem in Pennsylvania.
