Rev. Ben Mills Youth Pastor Email Ben Ext. 24 Bio

Ben joined our team in 2007, fresh out of Bible College. He grew up in a pastor’s home and loves the church. For Ben, youth ministry is about making disciples, and training and equipping them for the work of the ministry

Ben, his wife Naomi, and their son, Charlie, love sports, hiking, canoeing, camping, and pretty much anything that gets them outside. They also happen to be Habs fans, but don’t hold that against them.

Ben earned his B.A. in Youth Ministry at Moody Bible Institute and is currently working on his MTS at Heritage Seminary in Cambridge.

If you have any questions about our youth program please don’t hesitate to give Ben a call or drop him an email. He would love to hear from you.
