Joining the GenOn Ministries staff this fall, Betsy Dishman will be serving as Training Coordinator.
Having served in various churches for decades, Betsy is currently on staff at Olivet Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville, Virginia as Director of Music and Children’s Ministries where she directs their Kids’ Connection (LOGOS) Ministry and leads Worship Arts. She has also led retreats for families, directed music conferences, served as worship leader for special events, and volunteered for local and international mission trips. Betsy and her husband, Keith, live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, enjoying time with their adult sons, Zach and Jacob. They are all proud Dukes of James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia!
Years ago, as a young mother seeking a preschool for her son, Betsy stumbled on a church that could meet that need, and allow her to rejoin the work force as the preschool music teacher. Later when called to join the church staff as music director, a portion of that position was to resource the existing LOGOS worship arts leaders. Back in the day, this meant choir for every child and youth who attended, truly a music director’s dream! Betsy was sold on LOGOS from that day forward, volunteering with GenOn Ministries since 2001 as training leader, team leader, curriculum and resource writer, workshop leader, and Summit East choir director.
On being called to serve as Training Coordinator, Betsy is excited to begin this new venture! Her work will include calling and supporting training leaders, coordinating training opportunities with churches, and supporting the vision of GenOn to energize and strengthen faith communities for renewed growth.
