The Ministry Collaborative is excited to announce and welcome the Rev. Beth Daniel as our ministry’s Facilitator Curator! Beth is joining us – the first addition we have made to our staff in three years – to make sure we keep a strong relational focus on how we do our work. As we have grown much larger, we do not want to lose consistent communication, especially with our cohort facilitators. Along with the rest of the staff team, Beth will assist facilitators with finding innovative strategies for cohort formation and implementation, help create and nurture a culture of innovation and collaboration, acting as a conversation partner for solutions and troubleshooting, as well as offering encouragement, connection, support, and prayer.
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.
The Ministry Collaborative’s Executive Director, Rev. Mark Ramsey, commented, “We’ve known for some time that we needed to add capacity to our staff to continue our highly relational way of working, but we knew it had to be the right person with the right gifts. As soon as we met Beth and heard about her ministry, we knew we had the person best equipped to join us in this important work. We are so grateful she felt similarly called to join us!”
Beth states, “I am thrilled to join the incredible team at The Ministry Collaborative. Over the years, I have seen the impact The Ministry Collaborative has had on individuals, congregations, and communities. As a pastor, I know how important their values of connection, creativity, and contextual resources are for faithful and effective ministry. I am honored and excited to participate in the good work of TMC.”
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.
Please join us as we welcome Beth to The Ministry Collaborative team!
