MEET BEN & JASON
Jason Ballard has been in youth ministry since he was 16 years old at Terry Fox Secondary School in Port Coquitlam, BC. As the leader of a student led prayer group he used the Quest video series to share the gospel with over 100 of his peers. Over the last 7 years he has spoken to high school students all over Canada. He oversees Alpha - Youth in Canada. He and his wife Rachael live in Langley, BC with their son Hudson. Ben Woodman has been a youth pastor for over a decade. He and his wife Melissa started dating while leading alongside each other in 2003 and have been dating each other and mentoring young people ever since. Ben and Jason met because Ben’s mentor was Bill Ballard (Jason’s dad) and it was Bill who gave Ben his first opportunity to preach while leading at Young Life. Its a fun story because Ben became a youth pastor shortly after at Hillside Community Church and was a youth pastor to Jason and his two older brothers. When Jason took the job overseeing Alpha - Youth in Canada he hired Ben.
