The Revd Ben Sharpe has been a follower of Jesus since 1978, serving in pastoral ministry since 1987. He received his undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and his MDiv from the Divinity School at Duke University.
The Bible is the foundation for Ben’s personal faith and public ministry. He loves church history and the teaching of the Early Church Fathers, both of which are building blocks for his teaching and preaching. Ben has a passion for implementing life-long catechesis (systematic discipleship training). He is also deeply involved in forming a new generation of ordained Anglican leaders via the Simeon Fellowship program of Christ Church.
Ben and Lisa have been married for 36 years. They are the proud parents of three beautiful adult daughters and have three grandchildren. He is an avid backpacker and hiker, and in keeping with the great tradition of the Reformation (e.g. Katie Luther), Ben also brews his own beer.
Above all things Ben loves the Lord Jesus Christ and desires to glorify him in all things.
