Ben Sander

Music Pastor


Ben grew up in Arapahoe, NE. (don’t blink or you’ll miss it…Go Huskers!) and was blessed to grow up in a Christian home. He comes from a long line of pastors on both sides of his family.  Ben went to Nebraska Christian for 2 years, met his wife Kelli and moved to Grand Island, NE.  The next few years he worked in quality assurance at a factory before answering the call to return to school and work towards entering full-time ministry.  His degree is in Audio Technology and he took a job immediately upon graduating as an Associate Worship Pastor in Council Bluffs, IA where he spent 4 1/2 years serving in that Church/Community. Ben joined the staff here at Crossroads in Jan. of 2016.

Ben has a heart for multi-generational worship and strives to bring music that encourages participation of the congregation.

Ben enjoys playing multiple instruments along with song writing/recording.  Ben also enjoys camping, fishing, and spending time with his family. His family consists of his wife Kelli, and two daughters Hayley and Emmalyn.
