With an average of 350-400 members, Beymer Church is a United Methodist congregation in Winter Haven, FL, a community of 43,000 in central Florida (70,000 in 30 minute drive area).  At Beymer, we believe that worship is more than the music before a sermon.  It’s something that leads us to love God more deeply that we might serve God more faithfully in the world.  The responsibility of our worship leader is to lead others toward that.  Beymer is poised for growth and you can be part of that.
