Background: Pastor Ben Thomas was born in Kizhvaypur, Kerala, India. Since his early childhood, he was raised in a family where he was exposed to the ministry. When the Pentecostal faith reached India in the early 1900’s his family left everything to become ministers of the Gospel. He comes from a rich heritage of pastoral ministry; his grand parents pioneered and pastored many churches and his father became a Church of God Pastor in India. Pastor Benjamin migrated to the U.S. in his young age where he has been a member of QCOG ever since. After his university education in Accounting, he pursued his studies in Pastoral Ministry at Lee University of Tennessee and Trinity Theological Seminary to follow his desire to serve the Lord. Pastor Benjamin was working in a management position at the United States Post Office when he received the call from the Lord into full time ministry. For over 37 years, he has been an active member of the church and has held positions such as Youth Coordinator, Youth Minister, Associate Pastor, and currently as the Lead Pastor. His experiences have taught him to be a dynamic leader, preacher, teacher, missionary, and songwriter. Pastor Benjamin grasps the importance of training up the next generation which is evident in his proactive approach to developing young leaders. Both Pastor Benjamin and his wife, Mercy, passionately believe in the potential of people and are devoted to the cause of Christ. Pastor Benjamin and Mercy live in East Meadow, New York with their daughter, Abigail
