Pastor Ben Pearson grew up in the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland as the eldest of six children. Upon leaving school, he completed an automotive trade and later was self employed for over nine years. During this time he married his wife Terrena, became a father and finally reconnected his life with Christ—in that order! Ben went on to complete studies in Christian ministry and theology.
Ben and Terrena have been blessed with three children: Izaac, Zoe and Ivy, and he ministers in the Northern Beaches of Townsville. Ben is usually described by his peers as highly energetic and motivated.
Ben has a great passion for reaching beyond church walls and a desire to see everyone in real relationship with Jesus, no matter what their background. His ultimate vision is to motivate people to live outward focused and God focused lives, while constantly engaging others with God’s Word!
Ben is an all-rounder who enjoys most sports, but loves motorcycles. He unwinds by camping with the family whenever he can.
Ben is a Board member and was previously the senior pastor at Northreach Baptist Church at Kirwan – Townsville.
