Ben and his wife Christina and their two girls moved to Guelph in Fall 2018 after previously serving at Willowdale Baptist Church in Toronto. Ben has a background in counseling and pastoral ministry. In our office, he is responsible for the facilitation of our candidate processing. This process is focused on discerning, developing, and deploying qualified individuals to serve cross-culturally. Ben has the privilege of walking with applicants and newly appointed missionaries, in partnership with their churches, as they discern God’s call and direction and prepare for deployment. He will also be responsible for training and equipping newly appointed missionaries in the partner-raising process (creating a prayer and financial support team).
