Ben Brittian was born in Minden Louisiana in 1980 but grew up in East Texas in the small town of Joaquin where he still lives with his wife of 13 years, Tiffany, and three sons Lariat, Chandler, and Ryland. Ben was blessed with parents that raised him in church which allowed him the opportunity of hearing God’s Word. As a result, he was saved at the early age of 8 years old and became a member of Bethlehem MBC where today he serves as a Deacon. Ben was blessed in 2009 to go on his first building project. In 2010 his life was changed by answering Gods call to go fulltime in the Building Ministry. Little did he know God was not done with him yet. In 2012 Ben answered Gods call to preach His Word. “This has been a tremendous blessing for our Family,” says Ben. “It has allowed us to meet many people and visit many of His churches. It has also opened the door for us to spread the word about the Macedonian Mission Service. I am excited to be a part of this team as a staff member and look forward to serving God in any way he allows me to.”
