Growing up in Arizona in a ministry family, Ben felt God’s call to youth ministry when he was seventeen years old. While attending Cedarville University in Ohio, he met his wife Marcy and together they now share their three active sons and beautiful daughter. They youth pastored for two years in Ohio before moving to Harrisburg to be closer to family.
In 2005, Ben was hired as the building engineer at Life Center. Meanwhile, he and Marcy began volunteering in Heirborne, Life Center’s youth ministry, and appreciated how young people are loved and encouraged. In 2009, Ben was asked to pastor the youth of Life Center and still today, continues to challenge the next generation in unlocking God’s destinies for their lives. Ben’s contagious enthusiasm for both God and life ignites every youth event and fosters a genuine level of fun in Heirborne. Both Ben and Marcy desire to see each young person experience genuine relationship with God through worship encounters, the Word, and ministering out of the overflow of God’s love.
