Jo Anne Beaty

Children's Minister

Growing up in a small south Arkansas town, Jo Anne was always involved in church. She has been a member of DaySpring since 2004. After retiring from teaching elementary students in Waco ISD, she began working in the Children's Ministry at DaySpring. She enjoys interacting with children, listening to their observations and questions and watching them develop in their relationships with God and with the church. Her faith continues to grow through experiences at DaySpring. Her husband, Michael, teaches at Baylor; they are the parents of two wonderful sons and grandparents of three delightful children. They enjoy gardens, walks and trips to Santiago, Chile, where their grandchildren live.
