Ben grew up in Northwest Arkansas and enjoys running, playing the piano and art. After battling depression and suicide attempts as a teenager, he came to Ozarks Teen Challenge. When Ben had been in the program about 10 months, he gave his life to God and experienced the life-transformation that Christ brings. After graduating the program in 2016, he served as a missionary in Thailand.
He then moved back to Missouri to work at Ozarks Teen Challenge through our internship program and has now moved into a support staff role.
