Ben Waller

Youth Ministry Manager

Ben grew up in Columbia, South Carolina and stayed there to attend the great University of South Carolina (the REAL USC, for those Californians who don’t know any better). He got his degree in Exercise Science and loves exercise and sports, especially football and volleyball. After graduating he worked as an RUF intern for two years at the University of Alabama, where he met his wife Sarah. Shortly after he moved to St. Louis where he received his Masters of Divinity from Covenant Seminary in May 2016. It was during this time that the Lord grew in him a desire for urban ministry and specifically began to place New York City on his heart. Ben will be working with Redeemer East Side as the Youth Ministry Manager. His wife Sarah also hopes to pursue a Masters degree in Social Work in the next few years and is exploring different options for school in the city. They are excited to be here and to be given this opportunity and look forward to what else God has in store for them in the coming years. “So far, I am most excited about the opportunity to compete in city-wide sports leagues. I look forward to playing flag football and volleyball somewhere!”
