Dr. Beth Mears


Director of Music




My job is to provide opportunities for our members to give of their talents and glorify God through music. As I plan for each service, my goal is to select vocal and instrumental pieces that will enhance our worship. When I am not at Forest Lake, I am the Choral Director at Richland Northeast High School in the Fine Arts Magnet Program and am the Music Director of the Columbia Choral Society. Bachelor of Music Education, Furman University 1983; Master of Music Education, University of South Carolina 1987; Doctorate of Musical Arts (Choral Conducting), University of South Carolina 2001.
