Ben and Rachel Miller
Ben was 5 years old when his parents planted Bend Christian Fellowship and was raised loving and living church life. Rachel was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska. When she was nearly 14, their family moved to Mexico as missionaries on the Baja. She met Ben at Portland Bible College on the worship team of the Hispanic Ministry of City Bible Church. They were married in 2004 and, after graduating in 2006, they returned to Bend, where Ben served as an on-staff pastor at BCF. In 2013, they moved to Ireland and had the ministry and business adventure of a lifetime…with all the ups and downs of a new business, new country, and new twins, making their quiver full with 5 beautiful children. They lived there for nearly four years, then returned to Bend in 2017 to transition in as lead pastors at Bend Christian Fellowship. They are passionate about the local church, worship, and helping people realize their God-given purpose, then releasing them to live out that purpose – both within the local church and out in the marketplace. They love people and they love fun. He loves the outdoors and she loves beautiful interiors, but they both love eating breakfast out and coffee dates.
