Board Member Spotlight

Don BeaumontThe Rev. Donald P. Beaumont joined Chaplain Partnership’s Board of Directors in May 2014. Don is pastor of Bethel Lutheran Church in Willowick, where he has served since September 11, 2005. He attended the University of Maryland at the Fulda, Germany satellite campus while stationed there during his enlistment in the U.S. Army. Don graduated from Concordia Theological Seminary in 2005.

When asked why he supports Chaplin Partnership, Don said, “There are some pastoral items that were not addressed or mentioned at the seminary, which need to be discussed or taught, such as end of life issues and ministry to the grieving, as well as ministry to support personnel (nurses, caretakers and friends of the newly crowned saints). Addressing these issues to those who are on the immediate side of care should and must be taught. The care of souls is among the primary and the first and foremost calling of any pastor, second only to the proclamation of the Gospel. My hope is to implement this training opportunity in northern Ohio and in the future throughout the region.”

Rev. Beaumont is a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS), and served as Ohio District Pastoral Counselor for the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) from 2010 to 2014. He serves as an associate chaplain for Lake Health Association, and is an active member of the American Legion Post 678. He also served on the Board of Directors of the Breckenridge Retirement Community. Currently, he serves as fifth vice-president of the Ohio District Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

Don lives in Willowick with his wife of 32 years, Georgann. They have one daughter, Jennifer, who is married to David Hummer and resides in Mayfield Heights, and one granddaughter, Abigail, who resides with her Lord and Savior in eternity. His leisure time is spent chasing a little white ball around freshly mown grass and amongst the trees. He also enjoys traveling to local events and festivities with his wife and friends.
