Ben Griffis, High School Pastor

My wife, Lauren, and I both grew up at Hope. It's been our home and our church for over 25 years. As we’ve grown, we've seen how the Lord has used Hope to bring people closer to Jesus. We caught this vision and both began serving and investing in the body as interns with the youth group around 2014.

In 2015 I was asked to come on part time to support the High School ministry in worship and programs. I served here part time while finishing my bachelors at Wichita State. Upon graduating I took over the High School Student Pastor position in April of 2017.

Since then, my heart for students has developed to one for discipleship of Jesus. To see students go from serving themselves to serving Christ and becoming disciples of Him - who then disciple others!

Lauren and I were married in May of 2016, we have 3 beautiful children - Adalynn, Judah, and Marshall, with a little girl on the way!
