After serving the SCBI family for 23 years, on staff at SCBI 1998-2017 and with the Baptist Foundation of Indiana since 2017, Bev has sensed the Lord’s leading to retire. Her prayer and trust is that God will continue to grow His Kingdom through these organizations for His glory! She has been a blessing to both organizations and will be greatly missed!

Although her retirement date was set for June 15, before a family trip to California, Bev willingly agreed to continue working for the Foundation as needed for a smooth and successful transition. She is grateful for her four years working with Jennifer Hall and the Board to implement procedures and strategies to make the organization more efficient, effective and current. A project on which she spent considerable time was researching and organizing trust funds to be utilized effectively according to the donors’ directions.

Bev plans to continue in ministry as a volunteer at Northside Baptist Church in Indianapolis. Her family looks forward to the additional time she will have to spend with her seven grandchildren. They have also indicated their expectation that she will complete the memoir writings of her life in Nigeria.
