Alton Beal was born into a drunkard’s home near Yadkinville, NC. In the early years of his life, he had few Christian influences, aside from occasional church attendance. Around the age of ten, he began riding a van to church on Sunday mornings. Two years later, he accepted Christ as his Savior in his bedroom while reading a Gospel tract.
At the age of fifteen, Alton surrendered his life to the Lord during the invitation of a Neighborhood Bible Time Crusade. Two years later, he sensed God’s calling to the ministry. Upon graduating from a public high school in 1992, he enrolled at Ambassador Baptist College.
His call to evangelism was confirmed during his college years. He traveled with several college musical groups as a vocalist and preacher. After graduating with a BBS in Bible and Evangelism in 1996, he was asked to join the staff at Ambassador as a dormitory supervisor, and later became the Dean of Men. His experiences in the Dean of Students Office have been a great asset in his ministry to young people.
While still faithful to his college responsibilities, Alton launched into evangelism in 1998, and his preaching opportunities have included revival/evangelistic campaigns, Christian school meetings, and Christian camps. The Beals serve as a family in their evangelistic meetings. While Alton is preaching in the auditorium, his wife Michelle conducts children’s meetings. Andrew and Jared help provide special music with their father and are teaching their little sister Karis how to sing. God has used Alton’s outstanding tenor solo voice to prepare the hearts of the listeners to receive his fervent, compassionate Bible messages.
While continuing his ministry in evangelism, Alton now serves at Ambassador Baptist College as its second President.
On May 3, 2010, Puerto Rico Baptist College bestowed an honorary Doctorate of Divinity on Mr. Alton Beal.
