Pastor, Rev. Ben Farrar, standing with his wife, Tiffany. Pastor Ben was born in Morganton, North Carolina, and grew up in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. He holds his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina, with a double major in Family Ministry and Theatre Arts. He holds a Master’s Degree in Christian Ministry from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He has served as the pastor of this church for the past three years, and is enjoying his time here immensely. Becoming the pastor of a church has been a dream of his for nearly twenty years, and now he feels that he is realizing his lifelong dream by pastoring this church.
Ben’s wife, Tiffany, comes from Bardstown, KY. She is a schoolteacher with 13 years of teaching experience in various public schools. She has two Master’s degrees herself, and specializes in teaching students how to read. In fact, her classroom has more than 5,500 books-more than the library of any school she has ever taught in! No matter what child enters her classroom, on whatever reading level, she can find books for them on a variety of subjects that will pique their interest and encourage them to read.
Tiffany and Ben both believe that God has called them to this area, and they look forward to spending a long time ministering among this people while growing closer to the Lord themselves.
