Grace & Peace to you from God our Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
My name is Ben Hitzfeld. I am married to my college sweetheart, Rebekah, and a proud father of our daughter Eliana Marie. I have had a passion to be a Pastor ever since I was a young kid preaching to my stuffed animals. I graduated from Manhattan Christian College (Manhattan, Kansas) in 2009 with a B.S. in Bible/Pastoral Ministry, and completed my Masters of Divinity through Wesley Seminary at Indiana Wesleyan University in May 2015. I am a 14 year veteran of the Army Reserves and currently serving as a Chaplain in the Army Reserves. I have served in full-time ministry for over 10 years, ministering at congregations in Indiana and Texas. I'm excited to have made my way back to Manhappiness, where I can combine two of his greatest joys: Pastoring and cheering the Wildcats! I'm a mediocre fantasy football competitor, coffee connoisseur, a bit OCD, avoid unprotected left-hand turns in traffic, love to wear plaid shirts, have perfected the art of procrastination, should not be trusted to be alone with a hammer or any power tools and HATE mushrooms. Seriously. I. HATE. MUSHROOMS. My favorite part about ministry is the relationships. I would love to hear from you. If I can pray for you or encourage you in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Grace & Peace,
