Ben grew up in Indiana where he attended Taylor University and got excited about working in either education or ministry. Having tried out both, he found the perfect fit by combining those two passions in Christian Student Development. Ben lives near campus with his wife, Kelsie and their three adorable children, Caleb, Jeremy, and Melissa. Ben enjoys reading (especially Tolkien) and going for long bike rides or playing with his kids. His favorite thing about LETU is the intellectual power and creativity of the students: Senior Design presentations, seeing students work at the airport, and viewing teaching exhibitions have all shown him how amazing LETU students really are.
