Our Pastor

Pastor Frances Beam

Frances Beam, besides being a founding member and now the Pastor of the Living Faith congregation is also a wife, mother, and proud grandmother.

In 2006, Frances left a successful career in banking to answer a calling to go into the ministry to lead Living Faith and never looked back. Through preaching, encouraging the church body, and leading our overall ministry she shares the love of God and love for others, though if you visit the church on any given Sunday, you will see she has a special place in her heart for babies and children. She makes sure the little ones experience and grow in God’s love for them and engages them in the Sunday morning service.
