Youth Minister – Ben Renkenberger

Began on staff: April 29, 2013

My family: My wife is named Brittany and we have four children – Jonah, Micah, Selah, and Olive.

Education: Indiana Wesleyan University, Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies.

Favorite movies: I love trilogies! The Matrix, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Star Wars.

Favorite Bible verses:

Psalm 46:10, “He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

John 3:17, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”

Fun things I enjoy: All aspects dealing with music, art, and photography. I love to play and watch sports – especially when it is my children or the students from my ministries playing.

Something that inspires me (funny): “Always remember that you are unique. Just like everybody else.” Unknown

Something that inspires me (serious): “Be where you are.” My father told me this when he was talking about being present in every moment.
