Bio Highlights of Beth Goss Townsend


  • Married to Fred, 27 years
  • Mother of  2 adult children
  • Grand-mother of on
On her own since 17 years old right out of high school, Beth had no choice but to go to work.  Starting as a property manager in Virginia, she climbed the corporate ladder and became a young executive working as VP of Operations for a Real Estate Company in Atlanta.  Eventually becoming a trainer for the industry, Beth was asked one question numerous times that changed the course of her life.  “How did you know your purpose?”  In her twenties, she had no clue of her purpose!  Realizing the depth of the question led her on a spiritual journey that continues today.  Since 2001, she has been interviewing “on purpose” people with the goal of learning how to share with others how to live a purpose-full life.  From her book “Life on Purpose,” she gleaned 9 “Purpose Principles” that she has found can help anyone learn to be led so they can effectively lead others.  Whether at work, in ministry, or at home, we all must set parameters on our life so we can do what God has called us to do with passion, while also realizing we were never called to “do it all.” The purpose is a mindset where passion lives, faith thrives, and God’s will is accomplished in the life of every Believer!
