Rev. Benjamin Webb, Pastor
Pastor Webb has been serving the Crestwood family since Easter Sunday of 2017. He grew up in Mount Airy, North Carolina, and attended Crown College of Powell, Tennessee, where he earned a Bachelor of Biblical Studies degree. Ben began preaching at the age of seven and was privileged to serve the local church as a youth pastor, college pastor, and itinerant evangelist. Before coming to Crestwood, he served as the Pastor of Rockford Baptist Church in Dobson, North Carolina. Ben met his beautiful wife Lindsey, who has attended Crestwood her entire life, on his first visit to the church. They were married April 13, 2019. They welcomed their first son, Benson, on April 3, 2022.
Ben spends most of his free time working in his yard and, in particular, with his roses. He also enjoys writing and gardening as often as possible.
Pastor Webb identifies with the Apostle Paul’s words in His first letter to Timothy, “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.” He believes that his primary calling in life is to shepherd the flock to a deeper knowledge of God through a deeper knowledge of His word.
