Sara Metheny


Sara serves as the Vice Chair for the Board of Directors at Beneva Christian Church, as well as an Elder and active member of both the Finance/Stewardship Committee and the Missions Committee. She also leads a Prayer Group on Monday mornings.

Raised in the Brentwood Christian Church, Disciples of Christ Church, in Springfield Missouri, Sara was active in the Youth programs, attended Church Camp and assisted with Vacation Bible School for several years. She began teaching Sunday school there when her three daughters were young. While there, Sara also served as the first Chair of the Board and helped build two homes for Habitat for Humanity.

After moving to Florida in 2001, Sara transferred her membership to Beneva Christian Church, where she immediately fell in love with the “Beneva family” and was soon teaching Vacation Bible School and then Sunday school for both children and adults. Over the years, she has hosted small groups and has served Beneva as a Deacon, Financial Secretary, Office Secretary, and even served on the property committee, mowing the church grounds and painting several rooms.

Sara’s newest church passion is working as a missionary. In 2014, she had the opportunity to attend The Missionary Training Institute in Monument, Colorado for a month. She was invited to visit Belmopan, Belize and instantly fell in love with working in an after school program for the Mayan Indian children. She’s since made three more trips to Belize as well as two mission trips to Jamaica.
