Ben was born in South Paris, Maine, and was raised and worked on a small family-run dairy farm. He attended South Paris Baptist Church with his family and came to know the Lord as his Savior when he was 7 years old. As Ben got into high school he walked away from the Lord and lived the way of the world for many years, but the grace of God never left him. God continued to bring people into his life and built relationships that would lead him back to Himself. During this time Ben was married to Audrey and they started a family. Now he has two beautiful daughters: Aislinn and Lillia. It is when Aislinn was born that Ben and Audrey dedicated their lives to Christ and became part of South Paris Baptist Church in 2009. They were baptized together in October 2010. Since then Ben has been involved in Men’s Ministry, participated in a mission trip to Argentina in August 2016, and began serving as an Elder in 2017. For the last 6 years he worked in the precast concrete business but is currently beginning a new chapter in his career.
