Ben’s passion is to see young people transformed by Jesus. This passion has led to him journeying with young people from many backgrounds, all with the hope that they know and love Jesus. Ben’s experience has been within church settings and has opened doors for Ben to support people in the justice system, work with community organisations, and journey with young people in a local high school – Ben is now serving in the role of Youth Pastor at Westgate Baptist Church. Ben is married to Maggie, a registered nurse, and they are now locals of Massey. To recharge, Ben enjoys gaming, gyming, and grazing, in no particular order.
