He serves on the Military Ministry Executive Committee of Campus Crusade for Christ to support them to further their purpose of helping spiritually support the military community and those who minister to them. Ben enjoys applying God’s principles to life’s daily challenges, and the joy he feels in servant-leadership continues to give him a sense of purpose and fulfillment.
Ben joins me today to share the three critical lessons his fathers’ generation taught him and his cousins about working together and the way Ben’s dad explained personality types to him and made him realize that people need to learn to work together to make a project sing. He discusses the importance of having tenacity and understanding how to combine it with hard work to achieve your goals. Ben also describes his most significant setback, how it keeps him humble to this day, and why the experience helped him gain a sense of peace and purpose in his life.
