Lock Patterson Beachum jr
Lock P. Beachum Jr. has a vision for the people of God that revolves around CHANGE! Wherever God has him to minister, either teaching or preaching, his heart's desire is that the people of God lives be transformed from the inside out. Lock aspires to be a “John 5:19” Man of God: one who only does what the Father has him to do.
A deep compassion for people is exemplified in his ministry at Victory @Liberty, where he serves as Senior Pastor. Lock's transparency, tenacious spirit, love, sense of humor and most of all, his spirit of humility and being a visionary are all an inspiration to those who want to know and live for God. Lock is truly a man that is Kingdom Minded.
Lock also co-owns New Life Group Homes LLC, which serves the Franklin County area in Ohio. His passion for lives being changed is also evident with the young men who are ministered to in all aspects of their lives.
Lock expresses vocally that the greatest moment in Ministry happened on June 1, 2008. He literally answered “the call” that would forever change his life. That two minute phone call and forty five minute personal conversation which ensued with his Spiritual “Dad” and his Pastor, David L. Thomas became the pivotal beginning to his Destiny!
Lock married the woman of his dreams, Gloria in 2002. They are the proud parents of two sons: Brandon and Patterson, and a daughter, Nyomi. Lock holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Miami (Oh) University. Although he envisioned his life traveling down a different path that included a professional football career in the National Football League, God had another plan for his life.
Lock can remember as a Senior in High School writing in his year book “Don’t chase Success, chase Excellence and Success will chase You”! Lock ultimately wants to leave a Legacy that will extend beyond his lifetime. His greatest vision for the Liberty Campus is to create an environment conducive to change.
