Ben and his wife Libby have been married for almost twelve years. Ben’s occupation is business communications. He and wife have four children, Shane (8), Lukas (7), Asha (5), and Bella (4). Ben enjoys fly fishing, disc golf, soccer, piano and vocal performing arts, musical theater, and cross-cultural experiences.
When asked how he believes God wants to use him as an Elder at Village he said, “One of my strengths is an insatiable desire to learn including reading widely and constantly talking to people from diverse backgrounds. In particular, I enjoy seeing people from different cultures communicate clearly to each other and achieve goals in unity. I see an opportunity to use these passions, my even-keeled temperament, and my listening skills to complement the strengths of other elders already on the board – especially as our church enters a time of selecting the next lead pastor and our continued desire to be a multi-cultural community.
We asked Ben how we as a church body can pray for him and his family and he replied, “As with any parents – especially of young children – we’d appreciate prayer for wisdom, perseverance, and forming good habits in our family.
