Benjamin Lundquist is currently one of the prominent voices for young adult ministry in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. He is currently serving as Young Adult Ministries director for the Oregon Conference and also as the Young Adult Ministries coordinator for the North American Division. Benjamin earned a B.A. in Theology from Southern Adventist University and an M.A. in Youth and Young Adult Ministry from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University.
During his time in ministry, Benjamin has spearheaded innovative young adult ministry projects, such as the Millennial Matrix in the Pacific Union, which led seven local churches on a yearlong journey of learning and development to love young adults better. From 2012 to 2015, Benjamin developed a proven mentoring model for young adults called Overflow, which has intentionally invested in over 1,000 young adults in the summer camp setting. Both models have been adopted and implemented around the country.
Each year, Benjamin leads teams of young adult leaders in community service efforts with organizations such as St. Vincent DePaul, Toys for Tots, and Samaritan’s Feet. He is passionate about inspiring young adults to become growing followers of Jesus and leaders for His cause.
