Many churches have lists of programs to help you connect with others in the congregation. You won’t find much of that here. Instead, we are an unapologetically relationship-driven church. If you ask “how do I get involved,” we won’t point you to programs but people. In the links to the right, you'll find the main ways that we encourage newcomers to connect with the people of CHBC, as we seek to live out the relational model of the New Testament church.
Born and raised in Indiana in a loving home, Beth first heard the Gospel from her faithful parents, and it was through their influence that she came to a saving faith in Christ during her early teen years. It was through the experiences of her loving family, having been changed by the gospel, that she began to have a growing desire to care well for many hurting friends around her. A graduate of Taylor University with a B.A. in psychology, she earned her Masters in Biblical Counseling from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Beth first came to DC in 2002 for a crisis counseling internship at an inner-city hospital. It was during that summer that she quickly began to love CHBC, and she also unexpectedly met her future husband, Greg, which the Lord used to quickly change her plans. Beth began serving on staff part-time as a biblical counselor in 2004 and has loved the privilege of coming alongside other women and applying the hope of the gospel to unique situations. Beth and Greg have two spunky daughters, Kate and Ella. She loves spending time with her family, traveling to Hilton Head, SC, and playing tennis and golf with Greg as much as possible.
