Pastor Ben Paddock began serving as the Assistant/Marriage Pastor of Mts. Runn Baptist Church in January of 2013. The Lord began a work on Ben Paddock and his wife, Kaija, about 9 years ago in Sunday School class while studying about marriage and family. They started pursuing how God would have them serve Him in their life. After attending a marriage conference, they felt lead to make a difference in marriages and families. They have volunteered with Family Life local ministries over the past 5 years and recently felt called to serve in the local ministry of Mts. Runn Baptist Church.

Both desire that married couples understand that their relationship with each other is about serving one another the way God has called them to rather than serving themselves. They strive together to encourage other couples towards oneness in the Lord. Together, they desire to see other couples search out God’s will in their marriage and family.

Ben and his wife, Kaija, were married in 1997 and have three sons (Cade, Ashtyn, and Mekhi).
