It is with great pleasure that we introduce Ben Hardman as Grace-Marietta Campus Pastor. After much prayer, the Grace Family of Churches Elder Board, along with Grace Campus pastors, feel Ben is the person God has called to lead Grace-Marietta.
Ben Hardman Bio
Ben’s vision is to awaken God’s people, equip God’s family, and unleash God’s mission in the life of everyday leaders through mission and discipleship.
He has been involved in Christian ministry for over 20 years, in megachurch, youth ministry, and church planting contexts. He speaks and trains frequently at events across the country.
Ben was a team leader on the staff at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, before becoming one of the founding pastors of The Avenue, a church plant on the campus of the University of Louisville.
Formerly named as one of the top thirty youth ministers in America and one of the top thirty Christian leaders under thirty, Ben is a graduate of Anderson University with a degree in Bible & Christian ministries.
He is a huge Ohio State Buckeye fan and a former high school basketball coach. Ben will be moving to Marietta with his wife Sarah and kids Cole, Caden, and Claire to pastor Grace-Marietta beginning April 2017.

Buddy Hoffman—the founding pastor of the Grace Family of Churches—went to be with the Lord Sunday night, February 12, around 8p. Though we have been anticipating this day for some time, the sadness of separation is real and very significant, especially for Buddy’s wife, Jody, for his children, Gabe, Joy, and Spring, and for all the extended family and deep friends whose lives have been touched by Buddy’s faithful ministry.

1 Thessalonians 4:13–14 (ESV)
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.
