As Assistant Pastor, Ben serves youth in grades 7-12, young adults and the men of Wintonbury. First called to ministry at 17, but unsure what was next, Ben studied journalism at the University of Tennessee. (Yes, those Volunteers!) In 2007, while a Baltimore journalist, Ben began studies at Western Seminary in Oregon. A few months later, he met Halley and in June 2009 they were married. Then, in 2010, Ben enrolled full-time at Western and received a Master's of Divinity in World Ministry. Ben's passion is seeing disciples follow Christ amid cultural complexities. He enjoys backpacking, snowshoeing and bluegrass music. Although, he has a lot less energy for those now that he and Halley have a wonderful, joyful son, Caleb!
