My name is Ben. I’m originally from West Liberty, Ohio (a very small town located in a cornfield about an hour west of Columbus), but my wife, Kelly, and I have been living in Michigan for almost 10 years now. We’ve been married just south of 12 years and have 3 crazy but wonderful kids-Emma, Levi, and Aletheia (Ally). I felt God’s call to go into youth ministry when I was 18 years old and have been doing that for 17 years in one capacity or another. ). I’m passionate about sharing the Gospel and showing kids how to love God and grow in their relationship with Him. I just recently came on staff at Grace and am loving it! I also love spending time with my family, hanging out with friends, reading, listening to music, cooking, watching college football (Go Buckeyes!), and a lot more. If you’re ever at Grace, feel free to say “Hi!” I’d love to meet you and get to know you better.
