Ben Wimmers is the Pastoral Intern at First Hamilton CRC. He and his wife, Kristina, have had a long connection to the Hamilton area growing up in the neighbouring towns of Burlington and Dundas, respectively. Ben completed his B.Sc in Life Sciences at McMaster University after serving with Youth With A Mission in Northern Europe for two years. During his time with YWAM, Ben developed a love of teaching, preaching, and community outreach. He is now pursuing his Master of Divinity at McMaster Divinity College with the goal of being an ordained Minister of the Word in the CRC. He is currently combining his love of ecology and biblical studies as he writes his master’s thesis on Creation Care. Ben enjoys unwinding from a day’s work by going on hikes with his exuberant pup, Winnie, and enjoying the best of Hamilton’s food, drink, and art scene with Kristina.
