Beth Anderson – Student Minister – Beth joined our staff in 2007 as Student Minister. She graduated from Averett University in Danville, VA with a religion degree after sensing God’s call to ministry as a teenager.

She has a heart for students and young adults, and longs to see them grow in their relationship with the Lord and then use their gifts to share His love with others.
