Ben was born in Hamilton, trained in Vancouver, and has now been in Red Deer since 2014. He’s a Greek geek, third baseman, and fledgling woodworker who enjoys dry humour, black coffee and dark beer. His heroes are Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Eugene Peterson. When he isn’t reading Russian novels or theology, you know something’s wrong! In 2005 he married Chantel (a public school teacher) and together they have two sons.
