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.
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 that "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."
