Betsy has been with Balboa Union Church since 2010, and has actively participated as a member of the Worship & Ministry Committee since 2011. In 2014 she accepted the role of Vice-President of the Council (with a lot of convincing and some understatement of what her responsibilities would be).
In 2015, Betsy accepted to take on the role of Chairman of the Missions Committee, as well as continuing in her role as Vice-President of the Council. Betsy brought to the Missions Committee a personal commitment to volunteer work, fostering rescued dogs, as well as working actively with a number of existing projects in Casco Viejo – setting up a community garden and working with youth programs.
In 2016, Betsy continued to serve as Vice-President of the Council, supporting in the Missions Committee, although she was no longer the chair. Her primary focus in 2016 was assisting the Ecumenical Council of Panama as a legal and social advisor, representing Balboa Union Church as our lay person on the council.
For 2017, Betsy continues to serve the Ecumenical Council of Panama as a legal and social advisor, representing Balboa Union Church as our lay person on the council.
In 2018, Betsy continues to serve the Ecumenical Council and is also on our Council in the role of “Trustee”.
