Pastor Andrew Beard
Andrew and Sarah Beard, along with their two sons, are from Dallas, Texas, which has been their home the past ten years. For seven years, Andrew served as director of the college ministry. In addition to being worship leaders and teachers at HPUMC, they led the charge to re-create a college ministry and renovate a dilapidated facility to become a thriving ministry for students in Dallas.
Before his full-time ministry career, Andrew worked in radio and was an improv comedy host. Andrew achieved his Master of Theological Studies with a Biblical emphasis from Perkins School of Theology at SMU.
Andrew and Sarah believe in the power of the Gospel, hospitality, relationships, and beauty. They are excited to be a part of The Chapel at Seaside and have a passion for impacting their community and beyond through worship and service. They believe that living and loving like Christ to build, proclaim, and expand the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven is a responsibility in which we all can take part.
Jeff, his wife Betty, and their three sons moved to Blue Mountain Beach, Florida, 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.
