My name’s Ben and I’m a 2nd-year Christ in the City missionary from Hebron, NE.

What brought me to Christ in the City

Later on in college I began to realize God’s call to mission. The spring of my senior year I spent discerning between becoming a missionary with Focus or CIC. At the end of the day, I knew the Lord wanted to form me into a very specific shape, and I felt like the CIC community was the perfect place for that growth to happen (and that I couldn’t escape that growth here, which turned out to be very true!)

What I’m looking forward to

Again, I was just excited to grow. To be embraced and surrounded by Christian community, to dive deeper in my prayer life, and to live so close to the mountains!


everyone deserves
to be known & loved

If you join me in the mission as a monthly supporter, you will also become part of Known & Loved, Christ in the City’s monthly giving community! We are so grateful for our monthly supporters and their consistent generosity which makes it possible for us missionaries to be formed and reach out the homeless all year-long.
