From Bishop Taylor: Health and Strength in Community XV
The Rev. Susan Bek serves as the Rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Ventura. She is a motivated and spirit-filled priest who loves her work serving God in Christ and spreading hope and Good News in the world. She lives in Ventura, California with her husband, Jon. They have four children and four grandchildren. Her passions include preaching, teaching, children’s ministries, music, graphic design and wildlife photography. She is proficient in both English and American Sign Language (ASL) and incorporates sign language every time she celebrates the Eucharist. She does this to show that we are committed to welcoming all, even when that means we need to change in order to become more accessible.
As the next step in our Comprehensive Growth Project we have added an associate rector. The Rev. Liz Williams is a passionate, spirit-filled priest with over eight years’ experience in ordained ministry.

She is also a life-long Episcopalian, baptized at St. Mary’s, Napa and attended the Episcopal Day School at Christ Church, Ontario. In 1966, Rev.
