Ben and Jess have been living and serving in Peru since 2016. Ben leads a house church as part of a Peruvian-led network of churches called Zona Zegura. He and Jess teach and disciple teenagers through a program of their church called Life & Work. Starting in 2022, Ben will partner with church leaders to begin evangelistic mobile medical clinics in the surrounding communities as a means to plant new house churches.

Ben and Jess live at their church’s mission center in a rural town called Izcuchaca, along with several other Peruvian families and—for six months out of the year—twenty five teenagers in the Life & Work program. They have four children: Elijah, Simon, Gideon and Luciana. Ben is a pediatrician and Jess is an English teacher, a former Young Life leader and a writer.
