MaryBeth Tate

MaryBeth and her husband moved back from OH and settled in northern Michigan in 2004. They became members at CBC in 2004. MaryBeth serves in different capacities including teaching 5th/6th grade Sunday school, missionary committee, music program, and counseling.

Education is very important to MaryBeth. One of her children went through public school, two children went through Christian schools and one child was home-schooled through the 10 grade and then finished out in a Christian school. Two of her children graduated from Cedarville University, one from Miami University of OH and one from Indiana University. Three of the four children married graduates from Cedarville. Three of the children have master’s degrees in various subjects. This shows her support of education in general and Christian education in particular.

MaryBeth loves motorcycling with her husband, spending time with their 4 children and 14 grandchildren even though they are in other states. One of their sons has been a missionary in Kenya, East Africa since 2008. She also enjoys quilting, boating and playing the piano.
