  • Pastor Ben Brochu

    Ben Brochu grew up in Donnelly, a French Canadian farming community northeast of DeBolt.  Through the ministry of Sturgeon Lake Bible Camp (SLBC) Ben came to fully grasp the good news of Jesus and follow him. After high school he attended the Grande Prairie Regional College to undertake his Bachelor's of Science degree.  Two years into that God called him to go to Bible college.


    At the age of 19, while attending Cariboo School of the Bible (CSB), Ben was asked to direct SLBC, which he did for four summers.  Ben's then fiancée, Jus (who he met at camp), started a full time follow-up program for SLBC in 2004, and upon Ben's graduation from CSB, they were married and he joined her in the work full time.  While serving the camp and ministering at the Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation, Ben and Jus began attending the Gospel Light. In 2006 the church called Ben as their youth pastor which he served at until April 2011, when he transitioned into the lead role.  


    During high school and college Ben paid his way working at a gas station, in the oilfield, as a hunting guide and driving taxi cab.  He has served on mission trips to Guatemala, Ecuador, Guinea and the Canadian Arctic.  He enjoys people  and any way to explore the great outdoors.  Most of all, Ben loves his wife and four children and is passionate about making disciples of Jesus who will make more disciples of Jesus.
