BETH BAXTER (new)
My husband, Robbie, and I have been attending CATC for 7 years. Robbie grew up in Ohio, while I lived in several states where my dad was a Church of God pastor. We met at Anderson University where I received a Bachelors Degree and then a Masters of Theological Studies at the School of Theology. I worked at Church of God Ministries through seminary, before moving to Texas where our first son was born. We now have 4 children, ages 8, 7, 5, and almost 3, and I have continued to stay home with them, where we home school the oldest 2. We keep pretty busy, but in my spare time I love to write, watch and play sports, travel, play board games, and spend time with family.
I currently serve as a small group leader for high school girls, enjoy the Women in the Word Bible studies, and I am the co-coordinator for our MOPS group. I was also a member of the pastoral search committee and the Youth Launch Team. Our kids have been so blessed by the ministry of the ECC, and they continue to grow and thrive in Kids! Ministry here. In fact, CATC’s Youth and Kids! Ministries are what drew my husband and me here. I love the emphasis on missions as well and the way that CATC sees themselves as part of the worldwide Church. That outward focus is so inspiring!

My lovely wife Janette, our 4 wonderful kids and I have been attending CATC since 1995 where we have been a part of the CROSS class, Youth Ministry, and missions committees. We have had the privilege of leading EPIC, the 5th and 6th grade ministry, for most of the last 10 years. I have been on several Jr. High mission trips to Henderson settlement as well as international trips to Paraguay, Tanzania and Village Project Africa in Kenya.
I have a long-standing passion for public education and served a term on the Lawrence Township School Board from 2012-2016.
I am the CTO of Pattern89 where I lead a team of engineers who write software to help marketers better understand what works with digital advertising. I have many interests including robotics and sports as well as a refined taste for coffee, scones (Brownscones), and t-shirts (tri-blend for the win).

My wife, Ashley, and I have been married for almost 9 years. We have a daughter, Kyleigh (5) and a son, Bentley (3).

I started as a Claims/Collections Analyst, Purchasing Agent, Hot Market Coordinator and I am now a Program and Projects Coordinator.
I have attended CATC since I was born, grew up in the children’s ministry, Club 56 and the Youth Group. I am now currently part of the Committed Class on Sundays. Ashley started attending CATC in 2009. She is a Stephen Minister and also helps out with the 3’s/4’s class on Sunday morning.
