Originally from Melbourne, Australia Ben met Jesus in an encounter that deeply changed him late in 2002 whilst he was very broken and dealing drugs. Since then Ben has lived passionately about one thing: Showing the world Jesus in everyday life and taking the Good News of the Kingdom to the Nations. For several years he served as a pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, California and is now the Director of Awakening Europe. He has a deep conviction that the Nations of this earth will be transformed by radical believers living free and proclaiming Jesus boldly.
“The time for shining the light of Jesus is now! As the church we will never change history from our armchairs at home”
