Both Benjamin and Jennifer are 3rd generation missionaries. Ben’s parents, David and Kandie Stilwell, serve with BMM in Peru. Jenn’s parents, Mark and Anita Swedberg, serve in Brazil. Both Ben and Jenn were saved at a young age under their parent’s ministry. They met at Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, IA, where they both graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sacred music.
God called Ben and Jenn to serve at North Baptist Church in Flint, MI for several years. During this time, they also served the Lord through foster care, fostering four boys. They are in the process of adopting two of them.
North Baptist has sent Ben and Jenn through BMM to Peru, where they will be ministering at Peru Baptist Seminary in Trujillo and working with local churches in need of further training and discipleship. Their goal is to promote Gospel-centered worship throughout Peru and South America.
