Along with being CEO of Flourish Ministries, Beth is Registered Nurse, and she last worked for Saint Francis Hospice. God has used Beth in nursing for over 20 years, in management positions, as a youth leader for inner city youth, and as a God-Mom to one of her youth girls who lived with her and inspired her to start Flourish Homes.
Beth has done mission work in India, Turkey, Egypt, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti. She moved to Tulsa to attend Victory Bible College and is a graduate of their Practical Ministries and Missions program.
Beth is passionate about helping girls thrive and flourish! She has always had a heart to mother, even when she was not yet a mother herself. As a youth leader, she identified that many young women simply cannot make it on their own when they are missing critical supports like family, basic necessities, and a relationship with God and His church.
It is her belief that when kids are 18 and aging out of foster care or in other tough circumstances, they are not “grown-up.” Young adults still need caring adults to help them navigate adulthood. Flourish Ministries aims to fill in the missing gaps and be that caring adult. Flourish became incorporated in December 2013. They opened their doors to full-time programming in 2019 when they were invited to take over the Manna House Program in Tulsa. They quickly closed again due to zoning and location issues. In October of 2020 they moved to the Circle of Care Campus on Gilcrease Museum Road where they are fully operational today.
