Ben was born into a pastor’s family. As a young child I heard the gospel frequently, but thought that “getting saved” was just something that a Christian did as part of the church culture. However, the Lord began to work in his heart to help him realize that he was a sinner who needed grace and forgiveness from God.
It was through the experience of growing up in a pastor’s home and seeing how the Lord uses pastoral ministry that the Lord began burdening his heart for pastoral ministry.
Ben and Holly were married in 2021. Holly grew up in Michigan and was saved as a young child. She teaches 3rd grade at Community Baptist Christian School.
Ben is currently pursuing an M.A. in Historical Theology from Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary.
