I am Beth Paz a Minister a Neighbor a Preacher a Kingdom Builder
Growing up in the state of Washington, Beth wanted to be an international missionary, but God redirected her to pursue inner-city missions in Fresno, California. She invested 11 years in leadership development and incarnational ministry with InterVarsity’s Fresno Institute for Urban Leadership. She has also traveled to 30 countries and served as a North American delegate for the Lausanne Movement’s 2016 Younger Leaders Gathering in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Beth married Ivan in 2010 and they navigate a cross-cultural relationship while living strategically for the Kingdom in a multiethnic neighborhood. Beth currently works as the Director of High School Ministry at First Presbyterian Church, Fresno. She is a passionate communicator of the Gospel and a 2018 recipient of the Hooper – Keefe Preaching Award from Fuller Theological Seminary, from which, she plans to graduate with her Masters of Divinity in 2019. In her down time, she loves tending her succulent garden and playing frisbee with Taz, her dog!
