Pastor Ben and his wife, LeNay, came to us from Minnesota. Having completed his degree in youth ministry from Crown College, Ben started his ministry at the Alliance Bible Church in 2005. LeNay graduated with an education degree and enjoyed teaching English and literature for several years at Eastbrook Academy before becoming a stay at home mother.
Ben’s faith journey started when His parents accepted Christ as their Savior when he was a young teen. Through their commitment to live fully for God, his family began attending a Bible-believing church where Ben came to faith through the youth ministry. God used those years to lead Ben to pursue vocational youth ministry. Ben’s passion is to encourage students to know and to understand God through His Word.
Ben and LeNay share a home in Grafton where they are enjoying the role as parents to their children (Stuart, Sawyer and Nora). They find great joy in watching them grow and change daily.
In their spare time, the Grahams love nature walks or landscaping around the house. Ben even recently started raising honeybees. On rainy days, one would have a good chance at catching them hanging out at a local coffee shop.
