Pastor Ben Griffin doesn’t wear his church leadership at Wilmington Central Church of Christ on his shoulder.
In fact, when he meets you, he’s just Ben.
Pastor Griffin is involved in so many different social ministries and nonprofit organizations in Wilmington, it’s hard for him to present just one hat.
On top of his preaching and teaching, he’s involved in bereavement counseling, chaplaincy, the Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry, the New Hanover County Blue Ribbon Commission on the Prevention of Youth Violence, the Cape Fear Area Resource Center, Northside Community Resource Center and the New Hanover County chapter of the NAACP.
That’s why I asked Pastor Griffin to write about life issues for Wilmington Faith and Values.
