Ben has spent a large chunk of his life working on empowering both youth and adults to reach their greatest potential.
While Ben has had the pleasure of working through many sectors of youth development, he is most proud to have been a part of many “firsts” in his daughters’ lives as they continue to help him process what it means to be a dad.
A huge fan of all things sports, Ben tries to find ways to watch, play (although not as well as he used to), and talk about sports as much as possible. Sprinkle in family time, board games, and a camping trip here or there, and you pretty much cover most of Ben’s passions in life. Currently, Ben is extremely excited and anxious to be a part of the beginnings of StudentLINC, a yearlong leadership development program for high school juniors.
Ben holds a BA in Communications from IUSB and an MA in Theological Studies from Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. He also is certified in ropes course facilitation and the True Colors Personality Assessment tool. Yet after years of spending time in youth ministry, education, and nonprofit work, Ben has found a home in how ULEAD works at empowering Servant Leadership skills in both youth and adults.
What would be on your ultimate breakfast feast?
Eggs, sausage, roasted veggies, a great fruit salad, and then something sweet to put it over the top – cinnamon roll, cinnamon chip pancakes, or a Risen Roll donut!
