Ben works at Christ Church Hillbrow (CCH) and Johannesburg Bible College (JBC).
CCH is a young congregation in Hillbrow, inner-city Johannesburg. Hillbrow is a needy area but in easy reach of a student community and the business centre. Christ Church has the potential to be a light in all these areas, proclaiming the gospel so that people would come to know and love the Lord Jesus.
Ben was minister-in-charge of CCH from 2014 - 2018, but stepped down at the end of 2018 in order to take up a teaching post at JBC and enable a faithful African to pastor the church. Godfrey Penduka, who was curate at CCH since 2016, has taken on the role of minister-in-charge, whilst Ben has remained on the staff part-time as associate minister.
Ben taught at JBC from 2010-2013 and is also hoping to develop and support similar ministries across the continent.

‘But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit come on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the Earth.’ Acts 1:9
Next term at Johannesburg Bible College, I will be teaching a course on the book of Acts, so I have been reading it in preparation. One of the things that I have loved about working at Christ Church Hillbrow is the sense of history. The building is one of the oldest in the area and the church is over 100 years old. But of course, with those words Jesus reminds us that whether out church is 100 years or a week, we are all part of something older and much bigger. The Holy Spirit has been empowering God's people to take the gospel to the ends of the earth from the very beginning. Though God’s people face opposition, and there is often compromise, by his Spirit God works that his gospel may go to his world. I am part of that as I seek to minister in Hillbrow and in Johannesburg and you are as you play you part wherever the Lord has placed you.
