It all started when…
Beth joined the staff of Lutheran Church of Hope in 2010.
Raised in Southern California, she attended the University of California Irvine, graduating with a degree focused on Early Childhood Education with a view toward teaching. In 2002 she received her certificate in Youth and Family Ministry from The Center for Youth Ministry at Wartburg Seminary.
Having been a stay at home mom for nearly 20 years, she returned to work when her youngest went to school. Combining her passion for children, and her love of God, Youth Ministry was the perfect place for her.
She is blessed by the opportunity to spend time with our youth, teaching them that they are beloved children of God and are loved just as they are. And, as a result of that love, they are encouraged to share that love with others through caring for and serving others.
When not at LCHope, Beth loves to spend time at home with her husband John and their dog, Wrigley, enjoying reading, cooking and yard work.
She is the mother of 3 adult children, Joshua, Hannah and Katie, and 2 grandchildren Sydney and Robyn.
