Ben Mandrell and his wife Lynley visited Denver in the summer of 2013 after God led them to explore NAMB SEND CITY. Ben and Lynley looked at 32 different cities but eventually came to Denver. When they came on a tour they felt God calling them to plant a church in Denver. After officially moving to the Mile High City in January 2014, Ben and his family went to Orlando, FL for almost 4 months for some training. After planting Storyline Fellowship Church, Ben has been working since mid May to get things under way.
Ben was called to ministry in his early twenties. He worked with campus ministries in west Tennessee at his soon to be alma mater, Union University. Ben was also a pastor at a growing Englewood Baptist Church in Jackson, TN.
After graduating from high school in northwest Illinois, Ben attended College at Anderson University graduating with a degree in Biology. Ben then graduated from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville with his Master of Divinity. He is currently finishing up his Doctorate of Ministry at Union University.
In August of 2001 Ben was happily wed to Lynley. Lynley is a licensed dental hygienist, as well as a devoted wife and mother. Lynley’s love for people and her relational personality are a perfect combination for the ministry.
Pastor Mandrell and Lynley enjoy their four children: Ava, Max, Miles and Jack.
