Pastor Andrew Beard
Andrew and Sarah Beard, along with their two sons, moved from Dallas, Texas, to Santa Rosa Beach where it had been their home for ten years. For seven of those years, Andrew served as director of the college ministry Wesley House and as an Associate Pastor at HPUMC. During their time, they led the charge to re-create a college ministry and renovate a dilapidated facility to become a thriving ministry for students in Dallas.
Sarah Beard and her husband Andrew have been in ministry together since they met leading worship in college in Missouri. Sarah grew up near St. Louis, MO, and For the past 2 decades Sarah has worked with and in the local church with youth, college, young adult, and women’s ministry. She has a passion for art, beauty, and hospitality. When Sarah isn’t busy with her two sons, she loves to cook, travel, and enjoy the beautiful beaches in the panhandle.
Daniel has been writing and playing music since he was 12 when he was given a guitar on Christmas morning. He entered the music scene leading worship at a former youth conference, Acquire The Fire and from there became the worship leader at his local church for seven years. Since then, he’s been using his personal experiences of God, love, and the journey of life, to inspire his dream to keep pursuing the music that makes him come alive. Daniel has always stayed busy chasing after all of his passions, but his true purpose is realized when he’s singing songs captivating the listener through convicting lyrics and catchy melodies. Both the songs he writes and the worship he leads invites others on a journey of discovering the complexities of the heart, mind, and soul. Daniel lives in Panama City Beach with his wife Jenn and their four children; Jace, Livi, Ellie, and their brand new baby boy, David Paul Pratt.
Jeff, his wife Betty, and their three sons moved to Blue Mountain Beach, FL, from Southern California in 2014. In 2017, he started attending The Chapel’s Men’s Bible study and found a need for his background in worship music, audio/visual, and internet technology. In 2018, Jeff took over as The Chapel soundman, and he and Betty have filled in as worship leaders. In 2019, Jeff accepted the position of manager of technology for The Chapel.
