Born and raised in the coal-mining valleys of South Wales, Beth received a Bachelor of Science from the European Business Management School at the University of Wales, Swansea.
She intended to live and teach in Japan for a year before pursuing her MBA in Wales. But God had a different plan. She met and married her American husband, Thomas, and after two years in Japan, she moved to Atlanta, GA. While there, she earned Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Columbia Theological Seminary.
Beth has served as a Director of Christian Education, Associate Pastor for Discipleship, Co-Founder and Co-Pastor of a new church development, and currently as the Parish Associate at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Austin, TX. She’s led many retreats, courses, and classes—particularly for women’s groups—and has taught both Greek and Hebrew.
She and Thomas have two daughters, Miriam Grace and Hannah Joy. Beth enjoys time with her family, traveling, and watching Welsh rugby. She drinks too much British tea and knows the lyrics (and the dance moves) to most 80s songs.
