Ben Umbel

Lead Pastor

My wife Tina and I came to Creswell in August of 2014. Prior to accepting the call to Creswell, I served for five years as a youth and associate pastor both in the mountains of Colorado and on the Oregon Coast.


Before entering into full-time ministry, God led me to Guatemala where I spent six months as a volunteer missionary with the Church of the Nazarene. While in Guatemala, God reaffirmed my call into full-time ministry and began speaking to me about finishing school. I returned home from Guatemala and started school at Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, CO. I graduated from Nazarene Bible College in 2009 with my Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministry. I was ordained in the Church of the Nazarene, on the Oregon Pacific District, in May of 2014.


While in college, I met my wife Tina and we were married in 2006. She is a great partner and support in ministry. God has laid it on our hearts to open our home to young children in the foster care system of Lane County. He has opened many doors to not only minister to children, but to their extended families as well.
