Guest Speaker: Ben Bloker
Ben is the director of the Soldiers Hospitality House, a Cadence International ministry to single soldiers and young married couples stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. Prior to joining Cadence, Ben served in the Air Force for 24 years as a photographer. It was early in his military career that he was discipled at a hospitality house in Kaiserslautern, Germany. During that time he learned the value of relational ministry and met his wife, Melody, who was serving as a youth worker with Cadence. Ben sensed God’s call to serve and love the military community full time while on his last deployment in the fall of 2013. He recalls a chaplain’s challenge from 1 Peter 4, “The end of all things is near… Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.” Ben and Melody have five children and love spending time outdoors.
