Pastor Ben has been married to Lavonne for twenty years. They have a son, Ben who works for Marion County, a daughter, Gladys, who attends the University of Alabama, and a four-year-old daughter named Sarah.


Pastor Ben studied Theology and Biblical Studies at Liberty University. He is currently pursuing graduate work in Theology and Christian Apologetics. He served in the military for nine years and spent more than a year in Iraq between 2003 and 2004. Pastor Ben started in ministry leading worship music, which led him to New Life Family Church, just before Easter in 2013. He has served as the lead Pastor since November of the same year.

New Life Family Church offers a relaxed environment without a lot of frills. Our Church service applies an acoustic style to contemporary worship songs, as well as traditional hymns. We use the Bible and preach an appropriate message directly from its text. Children usually stay with us for the music, and then break away for a lesson tailored for young and curious minds (They have a blast!), while the rest sit back and engage the Bible. We honestly have a meaningful time allowing God to reach us through His word and His Son, Jesus.

 At New Life, no one gets paid, and we focus our attention and efforts toward showing our community the love of Jesus Christ. We know we're all messed up, so there's no sense in trying to live up to a perfect image BEFORE going to church. Yeah, we sing songs, we pray, and we preach from the Bible. Nothing weird. No high-intensity. Just spending some time out of our week learning to discover a beautiful relationship with Jesus.
