    Ben grew up locally in Smithfield, VA.  He became a Christian at a young age, through the ministry of his parents, and his local church.  As a student at James Madison University, he was involved with Campus Crusade for Christ.  It was there that he began to grow in his faith, and discern a call into pastoral ministry.  After graduating, Ben served on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ at JMU.  Later, he moved to Louisville, KY to complete a Masters degree from Southern Seminary.  He came to James River Community Church to serve as pastor in 2016.  Ben is married to his wife Jeri.
