What people are saying...
"Thank you for being our Worship Leader and Keynote Speaker on February 2, 2018 at WoW 2K18, our special event for middle school girls. It was evident that your time at WoW was bathed in prayer from the moment we contacted you to participate. We appreciate that you were able to use our curriculum theme, Occupied, to share your testimony with the girls.
Your unique way of weaving music, God’s Word, and prayer captivated the girls and touched their hearts. You have the gift of making one person feel as if you are speaking directly to them, when surrounded by 200+ people.
It was honor meeting and worshiping with you!"

"When singer/song writer Beth Champion Mason ministered in our Night of Worship in our Recovery ministry this summer, something amazing happened. Everybody in the room soon engaged with her spirit as she magically shared her music and testimony with us. There was joy and there were tears in the audience. God’s Holy Spirit spoke to us all very clearly through Beth: There is a day and a moment for each one to come to God’s arms, He is a God of mercy who transforms us one step at the time as we surrender to Him, and He wants to use us for His glory with the talents He has placed in us. Definitely, Beth Champion Mason is an anointed worshipper used by God to penetrate the heart of anyone, regardless of age or where we are in our walk with the Lord. Beth has God’s ability to bring us one step closer to God though her songs and testimony. Beth is a true worshipper in spirit and truth."

"Beth, after co-leading worship with you in December, and then having you come lead worship this month, I felt the need to simply say thank you. As you know KPC is a unique and wonderful challenge to lead worship. We are VERY multi-generational, old school, with a blend of modern charismatic expression. You stepped in with a grace and experience that quickly put everyone at ease, and you lead like you had been a member for years. I so appreciated both your sensitivity to the Holy Spirit and the congregation. You clearly took us into His Throne, ALL OF US. Thank you for serving the greater body of Christ with your gift. Mostly, thank you for leading from a loving and vulnerable place."

CD Review of Postcards
"Beth Champion Mason...a new and refreshing sound in contemporary Christian music. Beth's melodic vocal style and reflective songwriting are both captivating and appealing to listeners of all ages. Through her songs, she relates personally to her audiences and challenges them to a deeper level of commitment in their faith walk with Jesus. I would recommend her without any hesitation to any youth ministry leader looking to use her gifts in worship leadership to enhance a retreat, camp, conference or Disciple Now."

"Beth and her team did an outstanding job in bridging two generations of church experiences; the young and the old were blessed by her testimony and music."
--Tim Robertson, Senior Pastor

"Beth Champion Mason is able to achieve relevance & individuality with a unique sound that defies description! Beth frames Christ's message of hope in her lyrics, and reaches an audience populated by believers and nonbelievers alike! In fact, the first play of the single, "Postcards," lit up the phones from people on both sides of the Spiritual fence! "Lavish Love" is both incredibly worded & encouraging, but also musical genius! The background vocals are rich & lavish as well! This is a CD filled with hit after hit! There is no filler in this effort at all, one song is as good as the next & they all hit the mark! … If I was being stranded on a desert island & could only bring 5 CDs with me, two of them would be "Postcards"—just in case one of them broke!"

"After the short concert, I was so impressed with her skills and her spiritual maturity that I decided, with the nudging of my friend Elton, to do something I normally don’t do at musical venues—buy all of the CDs! The next morning, I ripped open Beth’s latest CD, her sophomore album called Postcards…. I spent the good part of an hour soaking in the beauty of raw emotions, deep lyrics, and full-bodied instrumentation. "

Beth Champion Mason is a singer, songwriter, worship leader, recording artist, producer, and teacher, among other things. But Beth’s music ministry didn’t start with a career plan—it started with a calling.
Though Beth loved music growing up, starting on the piano at age 7 and writing her first song at 12, Beth’s life took a definite detour through her teen years which sidetracked her early goals of pursuing music professionally.
“I kind of gave up on that dream by the time I reached college age,” remembers Beth, “and instead I majored in English, thinking I’d be a novelist, or more realistically, an English teacher.” But God had other plans.
After college, things seemed to be going great for Beth: she married her sweetheart Lance, got a great job as a writer in the computer field, and quickly racked up successes and promotions. But the successes were empty for Beth; in her heart of hearts, she just knew that career wasn’t her destiny.
“I started desperately seeking God’s will at that point,” Beth recalls, “asking Him what I was supposed to do with my life.”
And one day He answered. That still, small voice whispered unmistakably: Music Ministry.
“When I first knew that’s what God was calling me to do, I was kind of frustrated,” Beth says. “I argued with Him, listing all the reasons I couldn’t do that: I didn’t have a degree in music, I had a full-time job, I had a mortgage, I had a less-than-stellar past history. But in the end, I just prayed, ‘God if that’s what You want me to do, You’re going to have to open the doors because I don’t know how. But if You open the doors, I’ll walk through them.’”
Open doors, He did.
At the time Beth couldn’t have known that now, over 15 years later, those open doors would lead her to sharing her testimony and music all over the country, or touring to over 36 states, or sharing the stage with national artists like FFH, or leading worship at the Focus on the Family headquarters in Colorado.
She didn’t know that God would open doors for her story to be featured on The 700 Club TV show, where over 1000 people would call in to dedicate their lives to Christ.
She couldn’t have known that God would open doors for her to record 4 full-length albums that would sell nearly 5000 copies so far, or have her music featured on radio stations all over the country, or host her own radio show.
And Beth certainly didn’t know that her music would garner her numerous awards over the years, from places like CCM Magazine, CCMNI network, KCCM Music awards, and others.
“All I know,” reflects Beth, “is that God has called me to do this. I have a story to share, about His grace and about second chances. I think my calling is to help other people find their calling. And as long as He keeps opening doors for me, I’ll keep walking through them.”
- Partnered with Leah Martensen on the "Road to Recovery Tour" for over 6 years, which ministered all over the country, in over 35 states
- Featured twice on "The 700 Club" national TV program
- Shared the stage with national recording artists such as FFH
- Sold nearly 5000 copies of her CDs: "I Remember Christmas" (2012), "Just a Glimpse" (2010), "Postcards" (2005), "All I Have" (2002), and "B-sides & Extras" (2005, EP)
- Radio play on stations around the country
- Recognized in multiple contests, including 1st place winner in the Contemporary Christian Music Network International (CCMNI) Songwriting Contest, for "Save Me"
