Executive Pastor of Innovation
Ben Spangler works with Developing Ministries at Shoreline. He has spent most of his life in a darkroom with the eerie glow of a computer. Ben’s first position in a church was his senior year of High School when he coordinated a summer program for 4-6th graders. That same year he also worked in a computer store repairing machines. Since that time he has had two simultaneous careers in technology and ministry.
Ben loves to learn and help others to fulfill a calling and passion in ministry. He has worked at Shoreline since 2003 when we moved into a circus tent. Ben thrives in the innovative environment at Shoreline. He lives in Monterey with his wife Lacy and kids, Ian, Kaiya, Elyse, and Juliette.
