Beth Watson Mueller, a life long Presbyterian (in Mission Presbytery!) co-directed John Knox Ranch from 1988-2002, where she had attended camp as a camper in the 1970s (with Rev. Doug Dalglish, who hasn’t changed at all since camper days!). After leaving John Knox, Beth worked with the campus ministry program at Trinity University in San Antonio through 2008. Beth currently serves Shepherd of the Hills Presbyterian Church in Austin TX, as the Worship Arts Director and Worship Band leader. Beth has a long history of denominational leadership in music, recreation, and worship, including Montreat, MoRanch, Triennium, and countless camps and conferences. She was the editor of New Song, the PCUSA’s musical resource for youth ministry. She is married to Rob Mueller, who is the Pastor of Divine Redeemer Presbyterian Church in San Antonio (and super cute), and they have 6 awesome kids between them.
Beth is thrilled to be back at JKR for the summer of 2018! She plans to mobilize the amazing JKR alumni, reset the programatic vision of the Ranch, and fix and spiff up as many things as possible in the 4 months she is spending at JKR. This unique place has informed her ministry of 30 years, and stands as the most special, transformative, spiritual space on the planet for her!
