Ben Parker

Student Pastor/Spiritual Development

Ben grew up in the San Antonio area, and began following Jesus at 13 years old when he found that there is no greater love and no more incredible life than knowing Jesus. Ben loves hot tea probably more than anyone you've ever met (ask him about it!), and also loves hiking, playing piano, reading, and surprises. Ben lives just south of Round Rock in Wells Branch with his wife Nicole, their charmingly un-friendly cat Allie, and their cute but crazy puppy Bear.
