God calls all to his mission of justice, mercy and humbleness. The call comes in many different forms, requiring many different types of service throughout the world. Ben Wickstrom is excited to answer God’s call in his life. He has been accepted for service as a short-term missionary with Covenant World Missions, a part of the Evangelical Covenant Church. For one year, he will be serving in Oaxaca, Mexico, by partnering with Oaxaca Covenant Churches and with other missionaries and organizations.
At Sojourner, Ben was involved with the worship team, helped with Children's Church, led a Young Adult Bible Study, and was a regular volunteer with Cafe Sojourner.
