This #featurefriday we introduce to you Ben Maxwell, our Youth Programme Coordinator! Ben is an all round good guy, who loves to keep organised, hit the gym and does a whole bunch of organising for youth and their leaders. Ben moved to New Zealand two years ago from across the ditch and loves hearing your Aussie jokes - especially about the Wallabies!
We asked Ben a few questions...
Q: What is the craziest youth game or event you’ve ever been involved with?
A: “One I’ll always remember is when we had a night for just the guys and we lined up a couple of cars and put them into neutral and we had a race to see who could push their car across the finish line first. All hilarity ensued! Cars and people going everywhere! Another crazy event was we had a big challenge activity and every time you lost you were sat in the middle of a big tarp and had food scraps chucked at you!”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: “I’m passionate about young people ‘getting it’ and realising their full potential. I want to see young people step into leadership and see our generations transformed by Christ. I’m also passionate about politics and fitness.”
