Pastor Duane and Daylin Beach

Duane is the teaching pastor at High Point Baptist Church. He grew up in Germany ministering to the American Military. In 2004, he came back to Germany with his family, and in 2005 he assumed leadership of High Point.

He enjoys reading, studying, and preaching—like most pastors. He also enjoys relating to people, playing soccer, and playing with technology.


As she grew up, Daylin never thought she would be a pastor’s wife. Now, God has gifted her not only to be the wife of a pastor, but also to shepherd and minister to the ladies and children in the church. She also plays the piano and helps keep everything organized at High Point!

Pastor John and Elva Beach

John and Elva Beach have been in Germany working with the American Military since 1976! First they started in Ulm, and then they came to the Vilseck area in 1993. Pastor John led Sean to Christ in 2006. John and Elva bring years of experience and a wealth of wisdom to the leadership of the church. 

Church History

After serving a tour at Ramstein, Germany in the Air Force, John Beach personally experienced how important it is to have a church family to help him grow spiritually. In 1976, he returned with his wife, Elva, and planted High Point Baptist Church in Ulm, Germany. The name came from the church that supported them and sent them—High Point Baptist Chapel in Geigertown, PA. After the Army base in Ulm closed, God led John and Elva to again plant High Point in Vilseck in 1993. First, we met in Amberg, then we moved into a store-front building in Schlicht. In 2004, the Beach’s son, Duane, and his wife, Daylin, came to work in the ministry. In May of 2005, we moved to our third location in Vilseck and then the next month Duane Beach became the Lead Pastor with John continuing to serve as Mission's Pastor. Now, we have been serving God and the Vilseck/Graf communities for over 25 years and God has moved us to our fourth location in the Industry Park of Vilseck.
