Ben and Shelby are currently serving at Lake Saint Charles Retirement Community.
Ben is serving the residents at Lake Saint Charles Retirement Community as a chaplain. The residents live in assisted and independent living apartments. As the Chaplain at Lake Saint Charles, he leads a weekly discussion group for residents, preaches twice a month in chapel on Sundays, and visits residents individually. He also supports grieving residents and performs funerals if requested. So many of the residents are experiencing loneliness and pain due to physical issues and the loss of loved ones, their house, and abilities like driving. Shelby works as the Chaplain's Assistant, caring for the residents and aiding Ben in conducting the regular Sunday morning chapel service. She also leads a weekly bible study for the residents.
Ben and Shelby hope that by committing to building relationships with the residents they'll be able to share God's love with them.
