Pastor Beverly was raised without any religious affiliations, but God was always at work in her life through family, friends and colleagues. She came to know Jesus personally in the early 1980s. She joined the staff at Good Samaritan in the summer of 2006 following 17 years of working as an attorney for the State of Florida—all part of God’s preparation plan for becoming a pastor and preacher. In her role of Clergy Associate for Pastoral Care, she oversees pastoral care needs, various prayer and healing ministries, Stephen Ministry, and Women’s Ministry. She has been married to her husband, Michael, who is also a former attorney, since 1971. They are both graduates of Florida State University College of Law in Tallahassee, FL and Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, PA.
