Who is SHYB?


We use our gifts to encourage others and lead them closer to Jesus.

We are joyful when a part of the body is joyful and mourn when they mourn.

We seek to be the hands and feet of Christ to a lost and hurting world.

Pastor of SHYB Ministry:
Ben Griffis


Ben Griffis was a student in SHYB from 2010 to 2013; the summer following his Freshman year of college he interned with LeaderTreks in Chicago where he had the opportunity to serve alongside and mentor some SHYB students.

The following summer, in 2015, he interned alongside Mark Hershey where he discovered his passion for youth ministry. In August of that year, he was hired on at Hope for part time youth ministry. In April of 2017, Ben began full time at Hope as the pastor of high school ministry.

Ben desires for students to grow in sharing the gospel and has a vision for students to understand the joy of pursuing a life with Christ!
