Ben & Heidi Ben and Heidi met in 2010 and were married two and a half years later. A part of what drew them together was a mutual desire to serve God on the mission field. The Thomases are joyful that the Lord has called them to the mission field, now to serve in England.
Ben's call is to lead the church planting work in the English city, Lincoln. Born and raised in South Carolina, Ben earned a Bachelor’s in English at Appalachian State University and a Master of Divinity at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC. Having worked in youth ministry for over 10 years, God has been working in his mind and heart in preparation for the goal of church planting in a different culture.
Heidi has extensive experience in missions and other travel, having served on the mission field in places like Mexico, Mozambique and Slovakia. She is eager to see and be a part of the Lord's work in Lincoln. Along with loving and serving the Church, Heidi cares well for her husband and three children.
EPCEW Ben is working as a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in England and Wales (EPCEW). Ben and Heidi have found great encouragement from the EPCEW presbytery as they begin pursuing their new direction in Lincoln. Find out more here.
