Pastor Benjamin WadeYouth Pastor
Bachelor of Arts in Ministry from Kingswood University
Licensed Minister of the Wesleyan Church
I am originally from Kentucky. When I was 16 years old I went on a short-term mission trip to Poland where I felt God calling me into ministry. After graduating from high school I attended Kingswood University in Sussex, New Brunswick where I received a B.A. in Ministry. While in school I had the opportunity to go on another mission trip, this time to Guatemala. As a part of the requirements for graduation I spent my last semester of university serving overseas in the Karis field. In May of 2016 I married my beautiful wife Katie whom I met while at Kingswood. I officially started as Youth Pastor at KCWC in May of 2017.
