WHO WE ARE
Beaumont Presbyterian Church is a church family where diversity is celebrated and all are welcomed. Beaumont is attuned to the needs of congregational life as well as the local and worldwide community. Mission is expressed both within and beyond the walls of the church as we endeavor to worship and serve our Lord Jesus Christ.
“If you have questions, then this is a great place to come, because we’re not afraid of questions!” Erica is one of our adult Sunday School teachers. Listen to her story about what brought her to Beaumont.
Two of our Beaumont kids tell us why they love Beaumont. They have a unique perspective, having attended both Beaumont Presbyterian Church and the Beaumont Learning Center (BLC), our preschool.
Watch and listen to a short excerpt from the Beaumont Faith Ringers, one of our talented musical groups!

We are blessed to have Pastor Riley shepherding us through the process of selecting and calling the next pastor for Beaumont!
Pastor Riley and her husband Scott and have two children, Elizabeth and Andrew . After a number of years of combining her professional life as a clinical psychologist with her service as an interim pastor, Pastor Riley moved into full time ministry in 2012.

Dr. Wayne W. Gebb joined the staff at Beaumont as Minister of Music in 2007, after more than 30 years in music ministry at churches in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Kentucky. He was a long-time faculty member at Midway College and has taught classes at the University of Kentucky. Wayne holds degrees in vocal and choral music from Westminster Choir College and Eastern Kentucky University. In 2008, he received the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in voice from the University of Kentucky, where he was a student of Stephen King.
His conducting repertoire includes major works by such composers as Bach, Handel, Schutz, Haydn, Mozart, Rheinberger, Holst, and Distler. He has made numerous appearances in recital, specializing in 19th and 20th Century English song. Wayne’s operatic appearances include such baritone roles as Count Almaviva in Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro and Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor. In concert he has performed as soloist for numerous works, including Handel’s Messiah, the St. John Passion of Bach and Hodie by Vaughan Williams.
Wayne is married to Billie Anne Gebb, director of Library Services for the Frontier Nursing University. They have three children, big sister Marianne and identical twins Charlie and Joey.
Robin Jenkins has been the regular nursery attendant at Beaumont Presbyterian since 2010. We are blessed to have such a faithful, loving person in the nursery with our littlest members and youngest visitors. Robin’s consistent presence eases the most anxious infant or toddler! She loves reading books with our children—her talents for singing and playing with children make sense when you find out that she received her B.A. in Theater from the University of Kentucky then worked 10 years in pre-school and private childcare, earned her M.A. in Special Education from Eastern Kentucky University, and taught in the public schools for 10 years. Robin also led story time at Barnes and Nobles for many years! Robin is accompanied by a second volunteer person (the second volunteer position rotates) on Sunday mornings during Sunday School and Worship, as well as for special events such as church meetings and potlucks.
