Pastor Ben grew up in Los Angeles, Ca. reared by God fearing parents. He was blessed to have a rich spiritual heritage with grandparents who were pastors and intercessors. His own personal experience came at the tender age of 10 when he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and not long after at the age of 12 was filled with the Holy Spirit while attending a Christian camp. During his high school years he relocated to the Northern California area with his parents where he became a member of Revival Center Ministries under the leadership of Apostle Ricky Nutt for the next 10 years. As he continued to grow spiritually, he answered his call to ministry and was licensed in 1990. He attended Bethany Bible College and received his Bachelors Degree in Church Leadership and Theological Studies. Over the years, Pastor Ben has received ample training by serving with a vast array of cultures, in multi-racial settings, and with several different denominations. He has served as an associate pastor, youth pastor, interim pastor, guest speaker, and ministry director. This has well prepared him in his call to raise up a multi-cultural church. Pastor Ben has and continues to travel extensively around the world where he provides pastoral care and teacher training. He has been an educator and business owner for over 20 years and is responsible for raising up 6 schools in West Africa since 2010. Pastor Ben is blessed to have been married to Tanya JoAnn Brooks for 25 years. They have four adult children from this union.
