Beth is in her third year as the priest at Rockwell House, having moved to St. Louis in August of 2015 (just days ahead of the incoming class!). She previously served for seven years as the Associate Rector at St. Clare of Assisi Episcopal Church in Ann Arbor, MI, where her favorite tasks were running the youth ministry program, directing musicals and pilgrimages, and keeping University of Michigan football
fans humble. (An Ohio native, Beth was fortunate to be there during a stretch when
it was much more fun to be a Buckeye than a Wolverine.) She received her M.Div. at Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Illinois and her B.A. at Smith College in Massachusetts. Between degrees, Beth was lucky enough to spend a year as intern at Rockwell House, an experience that shaped the best of who she is as a priest now. Her great joys in life include cooking for others, watching old episodes of The West Wing and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, spending time with her family, and laughing at anything and everything.

VALUES
Friendship
Not just friends to hang out with (though you’ll find that, too), but friends who will challenge you as you challenge them, celebrate your life as you celebrate theirs and who will be companions with you as together we search for purpose and meaning in our lives. Rockwell House is about building soul friendships - friendships that change who we are. Friendships rooted in Christ that last not just four years but a lifetime!

Direction
One thing we all have in common is we are trying to figure out what to do with our lives. What are our gifts? Where is God calling us? We search for those answers together as a community of honest conversation and prayer where you can be yourself - sure and celebrating one minute, unsure and scared the next - and it’s OK because we’ve all been there.

Community
We experience God when we dedicate ourselves to each other. Our faith isn’t just something personal… it’s a community worshiping, playing, praying, serving, laughing, studying, crying and living together. It’s not a clique or closed group but one that views each new person as a gift waiting to be unwrapped. That means you. That means everyone.

Home
Rockwell House is our home… and that means it’s your home, too. Rockwell House is a place where you can hang out, study, watch TV, meet with a small group, bake cookies, play badminton in the backyard, or sit by the fireplace. The whole house has wireless internet. The Chaplain’s office is here. And on Sundays and Wednesdays, dinner is here as well. Come on home, meet the community… and don’t be afraid to put your feet on the furniture!

Service
Our faith is not signing off on a strict list of beliefs but about a way of life focused on loving others. For the Rockwell House community, service is building relationships with those from very different circumstances from ours… seeing Christ in them, learning that we are not as different as we might think, and realizing that as we serve, so we are served.

Celebration
Rockwell House is not a community of tolerance, but of celebration. That means we don’t just “tolerate” people of all colors, genders, sexual orientations, nations, beliefs, shapes, and sizes… We celebrate the many diverse gifts God gives us in each other. We’re not perfect. We struggle with diversity… but when we do, we struggle honestly and openly and celebrate everyone’s presence in the community.
