BETH FREEMAN Chief Financial Officer
Beth Freeman is an accountant by trade (30 plus years) and a servant of the Lord by heart. She is a longtime member of Stanfill Baptist Church in Jacksonville AR where she serves as music director, Sunday School teacher, church treasurer and anything else that they need!
She was saved in 1997 at the age of 41 after being in church most of her life. She was raised in a loving, Christian home, was baptized at the age of 13 and thought that she was “okay” with God. Then she came to realize that there was so much more to being a Christian! It was then that she accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior AND Lord. Her life has not been the same since! Praise the Lord!
She has been serving Radiant Relief as treasurer since June of 2013. It has been her honor to serve in this capacity and she is excited to see what God has in store for this ministry!
