Ben Crandall

Worship & GraceYouth Pastor - Grace5Cities

As both Worship and Youth Pastor for Grace5Cities, Ben's plate is rather full most of the time with what he calls “an over-abundance of blessing'. He is passionate about proclaiming the truth of Jesus Christ through music and discipling young people. He gets the immense blessing of pouring into the youth at Grace5Cities and absolutely loves leading them to treasure Christ above all other treasures. In July of 2015, Ben had the great honor of marrying his absolute best friend, Adriana. He is a lover of the outdoors, good books, game nights with dear friends, and a good cup of coffee.
