About Reverand Sue Beall

Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! Via de Cristo has been a vital part of my ministry since I first attended a weekend in 1995, and I know and deeply appreciate what a precious gift it is to God’s work in the church and in the world. I look forward to serving with you as I serve on the National Lutheran Secretariat of Via de Cristo Board as Spiritual Director, getting to know you better as we work together growing spiritually and helping others grow spiritually as we serve Christ. I am a retired Lutheran Pastor (ELCA). After my retirement, I served five years as an interim pastor for churches in the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod of the ELCA that were in the transition process. I served two terms on the Board of the Texas VdC Secretariat, and also on the Texas Gulf Coast VdC Board as Spiritual Director since its start-up in 2017. I was married to Gordon Beall for 41 years until his death in 2002. We have two adult sons who are married and between them I have 6 grandsons. My formal education includes a Certification in Spiritual Formation and Spiritual Direction, FIND Program for Training Spiritual Directors, Sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, 2015; Master of Divinity Seminary Program in the Southwest, Wartburg Seminary, 1994; Ph.D. in Health Education/Communication, Texas Woman’s University, Denton, Texas, 1976; M.A. in Kinesiology/Recreation, Texas Woman’s University, Denton, Texas, 1964; and a B.A. in Health & Kinesiology, Mary Hardin Baylor College, Belton, Texas, 1960. God loves you and so do I. De Colores!
