David Beck grew up in Tampa, FL, the youngest of four boys. He learned to fish in Tampa Bay with his dad and still loves to fish any chance he gets! David knew the Lord wanted him in youth ministry from the time he was in high school attending The Wilds Christian Camp in North Carolina. He graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC. He came to Westside Baptist Church right after he graduated in 1987 and still loves youth ministry. He can't imagine doing anything else! His primary responsibilities lie in the organization and execution of a dynamic student ministry. His desire to see children and teenagers live for Jesus Christ is evident in all of his work. He provides a full program including challenging Bible lessons, Vacation Bible School, Awana, summer camp, parties/activities, day trips, and informal times of encouragement. David has been married to Jacquelyne for over thirty years and they have three grown children - Lauren, Alyssa, and Mitchell. The Becks understand the desire parents have to see their children grow in their personal walk with Jesus Christ. Jacquelyne grew up in Augusta and is a charter member of Westside. She loves teenagers and desires to see the next generation changed for His glory. Since she enjoys baking, she often supplies homemade desserts for the youth group. The Becks are honored to be part of a strong and vibrant student ministry here at Westside and enjoy working with people of all ages 0-100!
