Pastor Ben is our lead pastor whose main ministry areas are preaching, outreach, worship planning, mentoring and leadership development. He loves meeting with people for honest conversations about God and life whether it’s in local coffee shops, restaurants, or around people’s kitchen tables.
In 2006, Ben was called to start Victory of the Lamb as an outwardly focused new church plant to love people where they’re at and reach people no one else was reaching. After starting with just a handful of people meeting in rented facilities, God has grown our church to the point where we now have a permanent ministry center which allows us to serve those in Franklin and the surroundings communities.
Pastor Ben is a 2006 graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI and a 2002 graduate of Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. He still loves playing sports like basketball. He enjoys dabbling with musical instruments like piano, tenor saxophone, and the mandolin. He loves to laugh while playing board games like Settlers of Catan.
Pastor Ben and his wife, Sarah, live in Franklin and count themselves extremely blessed by God with their three daughters, Lydia, Sophia and Haylee.
