Israel Tour Leader
Meet our 2018 Israel Tour Leader, Ben Shaw
Ben was born in Vancouver, Canada but soon moved to Sydney, Australia. In his mid-teens an enterprising school teacher invited the whole class home for scones and a Bible study where Ben and a number of his good friends became Christians.
Ben studied at Moore Theological College, where he developed a keen interest in early Judeo-Christian history. Currently Ben is the pastor of the Boathouse Church in Putney. He has led ministry on a Richmond holiday each year since 2007 including when Ben and his wife Karen spent the Summer 2012 season working in Samos as the Manager, Rep and often the ministry leader.
Ben loves sport, ancient history, and music. He has also written a couple of Christian books including “Everything you want to know about the Bible” and “Everything you want to know about Jesus”
