Rev. Lisa Beavers (“Pastor Lisa”) will be appointed as our new pastor this June. Lisa has been a pastor for almost 18 years, having served in Miami, Shattuck, and Lawton. She was born and raised in Oklahoma, graduating from Western Heights High School (OKC), Oklahoma City University, and Phillips Theological Seminary (Tulsa). She is thrilled to be appointed to Frederick, and she says she looks forward to working alongside of us as we seek to follow Christ and share his love with our neighbors.

Lisa has been married to John for almost 19 years, and they love being partners in ministry. John is a website developer and computer programmer, but he also plays guitar and viola, and he is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

John and Lisa have four children. Bethany is 13 years old and will be in 8th grade next fall. She is introverted and funny. Priscilla is 11 years old and will be in 7th grade. She is a reader and a debater. Hannah is 10 years old and will be a 5th grader. She is a compassionate helper. Joel is 7 years old and will be in 2nd grade. He is all boy with his love for adventure.

The Beavers family enjoys Doctor Who, Star Wars, and any other science fiction or fantasy series they can find. They have been a foster family in the past, participated in Emmaus, and have two dogs (a yorkie named Max and a shih tzu named Kayley).

Pastor Lisa’s first Sunday at our church will be on June 10.
