Youth Team

Youth and Young Families Pastor

Youth Pastor Ben Neff and his wife Michelle have been serving the community for many years.  Ben has served in youth ministry in some capacity since the year 2000.  Ben served at the part time youth pastor from 2007-2013.  He also spent 7 years as the dean of senior high week at Camp Otyokwah.  Ben has served this community as a junior high math teacher for the last 13 years.  He felt unsettled not using his spiritual gifts to the fullest and felt the Spirit calling him to use his gifts more in the church.  He gave up teaching after 18 years became full time in the summer of 2021.

Ben also enjoys serving the community as a real estate agent and beef farmer on the side.  He likes to be out with people doing life together.

Michelle supports Ben in his work at the church and keeps busy taking care of their 4 wonderful kids.  Michelle also faithfully serves on the worship team.
Ben received his pastoral credentials within the Churches of God Conference in July of 2021.
