Rod and Beth Williamson

Rod and Beth Williamson, missionaries with One Mission Society, serve in Hualien City, Taiwan. Beth reaches out to families that have children who are uniquely-abled (special needs). Several of these families meet regularly in the Williamson’s home for fellowship activities and a Bible study. Beth also home schools Matthew. Rod oversees financial, legal, and logistical issues for the Taiwan field. He provides support for several databases used by OMS headquarters and other OMS fields. He also serves on the Central Taiwan Theological Seminary board.

Raised in Taiwan by his OMS missionary parents, Rod first returned to Taiwan as a short-term missionary in 1979. Then, in 1989, he returned again to begin full-time ministry as a career missionary. After graduating from Morrison Academy in Taiwan, Rod earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry at George Fox College, a master’s degree in chemistry at the University of Northern Iowa, and a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Texas A&M University

Originally from California, Beth earned her bachelor’s degree in finance from California State University, Sacramento, and her M.B.A. in management from Golden State University. She first went to Haiti with OMS on a short-term mission trip in 1989 and then returned for one year to teach English at the Bible school and to other nationals. Political unrest in Haiti brought about her transfer to Taiwan in 1991.

Rod and Beth were married in June 1992 and served together in Taiwan, where their two sons were born, until March 1996. They then served for seven years in the U.S. in the International Ministries Department (now Global Ministries) at the OMS World Headquarters before returning to Taiwan in January 2003. They currently work with families that have a child with special needs and refer to these special people as "uniquely abled."

They have two children, Joshua and Matthew. Joshua married Jessica in 2014, and they have four children, Hosanna born in 2015, and twins, Judah and Evangeline, born in 2018, and Shepherd born in 2021. As a married couple, they arrived in Taiwan as OMS missionaries in 2017 and served in Taiwan for four years before returning to the U.S. in 2021.
