Ben did not grow up in church, but while attending a VBS as a child he decided to give his life to Christ. As a teen, he began to attend church regularly, but when he was 16 his parents got divorced and he began to turn away from God.

He met Lisa in high school, and at the age of 19 he married Lisa, shortly thereafter Lisa began to encourage Ben to start attending church again, this is when God really began to work on Ben’s heart. At the age of 20 Ben rededicated his life to Christ and made the decision to be obedient in whatever God called him to; it was shortly after this that God began to lead them to working in Student Ministry. Lisa and Ben have been working with students ever since, they love the ministry in which God has led them too!

Ben and Lisa have been married for 18 years and have 3 children. They have a daughter, Kylee and two sons, Avery and Ashton.
