Church Leaders

Morgan Ward
Morgan WardDirector of Children's & Youth Ministry
Morgan joined the Beymer staff in November of 2016 as the Director of Children and Family Ministries.
Some of her hobbies include primitive camping, paddle boarding, and visiting theme parks.
She has two pet children. A one-eyed cat named Baloo who is a Russian Blue and an 8-year-old Shorkie named Sophie.
Her favorite piece of scripture is found in Romans. Romans 6:23 says “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (KJV) Morgan loves the imagery of our salvation being a gift that God has given us. We often don’t think of our salvation as a gift and this verse is such a poignant reminder.
One thing some people might not know about her is that she is not a morning person. She may seem very perky and happy on Sunday mornings but that is the gift that the holy spirit gives her. Sundays always give her such joy, but every other day of the week she is not really awake until around 10 am.

In January of 2017, the Beymer Chancel Choir collaborated with other local choirs in a choral workshop featuring composer Mark Hayes.

When he is lucky enough to have some free time, he is an avid reader of histories and mysteries, is the proud uncle of 6 nieces and nephews, and is the father of a spoiled chihuahua, Ricky. He has too many “favorite” people and passages from the Bible to choose just one, but can state with certainty that his favorite hymn is “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty.” Something you may not know about Jason, a native Floridian, is that he is already an alumnus of both the University of Florida and Florida State University, in addition to his current graduate work at USF. But…GO GATORS!
