Born in Iowa, Pastor Ben was raised and baptized into Christ in rural Nebraska. In 1988 he met the girl of his dreams at Lakeview High School. Some years later, he stopped being mean to her and asked her out. The girl of his dreams became the love of his life; Ben and Dulsey were married in 1995.

They lived, worshiped, and worked in Lincoln, NE for 12 years, where they had two daughters. In 2007 Ben, Dulsey, Kyla, & Sierra moved to the St. Louis area. Two years later, they had a son, Brennan. This same year Ben enrolled in Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. In 2013 he was ordained and installed as Associate Pastor in Minnesota, where he learned a great deal about team ministry. It was a great place to begin his pastoral journey. He kept busy with Elder care, pastoring the Lao members, substance abuse counseling, and teaching catechism.

In January 2018, Pastor Ben received a Divine Call to be Pastor of Shepherd of Peace.  From the first contact, it was a great relationship. The process went forward in God’s time, and the answer seemed inevitable.

In a way, it was like they were coming home.

Pastor Ben and his family found a wonderful place to live, work, and worship in Sergeant Bluff. Service at Shepherd of Peace is always exciting. It is a great place to remember what Christ has done as well as watch what He is doing in real time. Sometimes a righteous God even deigns to use the likes of us for His purpose.

His praise endures forever!

Soli Deo Gloria.
