Pastor Ben Miller
Beacon Church Elk Point, Lead Pastor
Ben Miller served as the Worship Pastor of Morningside Assembly from February of 2017 to August of 2021. In 2021 he began the work of planting Beacon Church in Elk Point, SD. He is a native of Cedar Rapids, IA, where his father pastored for 15 years before moving the Miller family to Sioux City to become the pastor of Southern Hills Baptist Church. Ben graduated from East High School in 2008 and Morningside College in 2017 with a degree in Music. He and his wife Deserai were married in 2011 and have four children – Johannah, Ellis, Daxon & Olive. The kids enjoy taking trips to the zoo, playing pretend, and running mom and dad ragged, and Ben and Deserai enjoy spending time with family, finding a moment to read a great book, and making frequent trips to Stone Bru for the best coffee in town. Ben has a genuine heart to see people fully engaged in worship, and plans to continue pursuing his calling through further ministerial studies at Berean School of the Bible.
