Hello and thank you for your interest in our  church! My name is Ben Rust and I serve Grace Baptist Church as their Senior Pastor. My wife,  Wendy, and I were married in 1999 and currently  have 2 sons: Calvin and Benjamin, and two beautiful daughters Ellie and Lilly. My wife and I first met  at Bob Jones University where we both attended.  After a year of marriage the Lord brought us to Northeastern PA to serve in a local church. During that time the Lord blessed us with two  sons, two daughters, further education for me, and many wonderful friends.

The Lord directed us to Grace Baptist church in  the summer of 2006 and shortly thereafter I was  privileged to begin serving as associate Pastor  and then later as their senior pastor in 2008. We  are most grateful to the Lord for the opportunities and blessings He has graciously given us as a couple to serve in the church.

We love the church and earnestly desire that the time and resources we have been entrusted with will be used for furthering the ministry of the local church - locally and around the globe to the glory of Christ. There is much more to our story, but I will save that for when you come and visit. Again, thank you for looking and carefully considering where and how the Lord would have you serve Him with your remaining days.


Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 2 Cor. 1:20-21
