Karl and Sonja
Karl Minor, Senior Pastor

Serving Beck’s Since: January 2002

Pastor Karl is married to Sonja and has one son – Justin. He is a Ph.D. graduate from Trinity Theological Seminary and is an excellent fly fisher. Being from Alabama, he is an avid college sports fan and will be sure to tell you. God has given him a heart for Beck’s and to every visitor he would say “God purposefully created you so that you can have a relationship with Him. No matter how far you may feel you are from God, His purpose for you will never change.”

Shane Hawkins, Youth Minister

Serving Beck’s Since: June 2015

Shane is a recent convert to Southern life. He and his wife, Silvi, moved to Winston-Salem from Louisville in June 2015 after both graduating with an M.Div from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Their son, Cohen, is the newest addition to the family. They enjoy hiking, biking, and any other outdoor adventures. Shane is known for telling awful puns and wearing shorts and flip-flops 9 months out of the year. God has placed a special calling on his heart to serve teenagers and his passion for Christ and students led him to serve here at Beck’s.

Adam Jones, Children’s Minister

Serving Beck’s Since June 2015

Adam and his wife Deanna have a great love for children and a special gift in serving them. Adam is a great lover of anything that includes the word “game” or anything he can do with his dog. He is a graduate of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and now spends his time shooting Nerf darts at with children. He and his wife, Deanna, have recently welcomed baby Gwen into the world. God has allowed Adam the blessing of being on the frontline in seeing young children devote their lives to Christ and grow in “wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man.”
