It is with great joy we announce that our new pastor, Benjamin Swenson, wife Michelle, and their three lovely children have arrived to lead our church in truth and love. Come visit and meet this loving family!
Ben comes to us from Muncy Creek Baptist Church in Hyden, KY, where he has been Pastor since 2009. Ben and his wife, Michelle, have been married since 2000 and have 3 children; Jake 9, Cora 6 and Ruby 4. Ben received his Bachelor's degree from Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in Pineville, KY, and Michelle received her Masters degree in special education from California State University.
Before going away to school Ben lived in Cedar City, Utah, and was active in Red Hills Southern Baptist Church.
Ben says "My prayer in my ministry is that God would continue to teach me daily those things necessary to make me into what He would want me to be."

"NOT A FAN"
Are you a follower of Jesus? Don t answer too quickly. In fact, you may want to read this book before you answer at all. Consider it a Define the Relationship conversation to determine exactly where you stand. You may indeed be a passionate, fully devoted follower of Jesus. Or, you may be just a fan who admires Jesus but is not ready to let him cramp your style. Then again, maybe you are not into Jesus - period. In any case, don t take the question Are you a follower of Jesus lightly. Some people do not know what they have said yes to and other people do not realize what they have said no to, says Pastor Kyle Idleman. But Jesus is ready to clearly define the relationship he wants with his followers. Not a Fan calls you to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple. With frankness sprinkled with humor, Idleman invites you to live the way Jesus lived, love the way he loved, pray the way he prayed, and never give up living for the One who gave his all for you.
