Ben Roe is a guy who loves the Lord with all of his heart, mind, and soul! His mission is to spread the Gospel to anyone and everyone! He's also the founder of Ben's Bible Instagram. He is also a staff member at Grace Fellowship Church, where He has additional opportunities to spread God's Word. He thanks everyone for their continued support. He's only 16 years old and is so grateful that the Lord has blessed him with the amazing idea to make a Bible Instagram account which has grown into an organization! He really enjoys hiking and exploring God’s amazing creation, and because of that he's been able to take some pretty cool pictures. On many of the posts you see, Ben took the background picture on one of my many adventures. One of Ben's favorite verses is; 1 Timothy 4:12-13. His favorite part of that verse is “Don’t let anyone look down on you because your young”! That part has always been an encouragement to him because he knows that just because he's young doesn’t mean that God won’t use him for extraordinary things! Ben hopes that he will be an encouragement to you! No, you don’t need to make a Bible Instagram but just start small, talk to your friends at school and NEVER be ashamed of your faith!
I grew up in a Christian home, I grew up hearing Bible stories, and going to church. When I was a little kid my family went to a small church but when I was 5 years old we wanted to find a new church where my family could find good Christian friends and grow spiritually and we found that in Grace Fellowship Halfmoon in upstate New York. I absolutely love it and have been going there for 9 years! When I was 5 up until the end of 5th grade I went to the kid’s program which was fun and exciting and I got to meet Christian kids that were my age! But when 6th grade started I started going to the Jr. High youth group and that was where I really started to get to know the Lord and have a relationship with Him! Along the way I had amazing friends and leaders supporting me and helping me in my Christian walk! April 23rd 2017, I decided to proclaim my faith in front of everyone by getting baptized by my Jr. High youth pastor Chris! Since then everything has changed! I have an even better relationship with God and I enjoy spending time praying and reading my bible! I have a new appreciation for worship and sermons now! I am now in my freshmen year of High School and I'm in PrimeTime which is our High school youth group and I continue to love the Lord with all my heart, all my mind, and all my soul! I would not be where I am today without all of my friends and leaders so thank you all who are reading this and have supported me in my Christian walk! Recently I had an amazing opportunity to go on a missions trip to Haiti back in April and had a blast! I was able to minister children, youth, and adults! We were able to play with orphans, perform a skit, lead worship, teach English and so much more! I had an amazing experience not just exploring more of God’s amazing creation but getting an amazing opportunity to bond with my team and people from a different country! I know God still has even more planned for me in my life and I'm so excited to see what's next!
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. ”
