Lead Executive Pastor & Elder
Ben has served as Lead Executive Pastor at CPCC since 2022, co-leading with Shawn to guide the church to carry out its mission to help people find and follow Jesus. He has a finance degree from UGA (and is a rabid Bulldawg fan), MACE from DTS, and DEdMin from SWBTS. He is thrilled to finally be back serving in his hometown after years pastoring in a variety of ways in the South and Colorado. Ben and his wife, Judith, have two children, Sean and Annabelle, who they adopted from foster care. Being a part of a church who cares so well for special needs and foster families through Pause is incredibly meaningful to them.
If you can't find Ben, try looking around wherever you see his kids, running a trail, on a race track (where he's still holding hope he'll be recruited to drive F1), or off-roading in his Jeep. He also serves on the Cincinnati Christian Schools school board and enjoys engaging with neighbors, old friends, and family. He brings a unique blend of ministry and business mindsets to our church leadership, while always striving to be relational first.
