Pastor Family 2022 (2)

     Pastor Ben Williamson has been with us since May of 2017. A native of Illinois, Ben grew up in the east-central part of the state hear Hoopeston. Ben’s passion is to teach the Word of God and make the Bible come alive. Ben has served in both pastorate and parachurch ministry, ministering to people of all ages. He serves on the board of RHMA and the local township cemetery board. Ben enjoys reading, parks, and ice cream. Ben’s ministry is not considered complete without mention of his wife. After attending Dallas Theological Seminary, Ben met Anna at the church they both were attending and they married on October 8, 2011.    
     Anna taught Kindergarten and third grade in Dallas and is certified here in Illinois. Anna’s passion is reaching children for the LORD, with many years of experience in AWANA and other children’s programs. She also enjoys fellowshipping and studying the Bible in women’s ministry. Anna loves cooking, entertaining guests, and curling up with a good book.  Together, they are the proud parents of three boys: Luke, age 7, Sammy, age 5, Nathaniel, age 2 and one daughter, Evy Kate, age 1.
