Our Guest Speaker is Benjamin Lins and our topic is "Behold, A New Thing", with stand-alone modules to help us navigate our continuing transition at Trinity Presbyterian. Let's gather with your church family for an intergenerational weekend of relaxation, rejuvenation and encouragement! If you've not attended GGA in the past, now is your time - and if you have, you know what a rewarding time it is. 

Benjamin and wife Mary, along with their 18yr old son Simon, and 16yr old daughter Josie, live in Piedmont. Benjamin has been pastoring and consulting with churches for 20 years. He loves to mountain bike and help Christians live out their faith in everyday ways.

He graduated from Messiah College with a BS in Adventure Based Therapy, focusing on group dynamics and team building. He received his MDiv. from Gordon Conwell TS, with a focus on church health and church planting. Benjamin currently Leads Compass Strategies part-time, a consulting firm for organizational health. Full-time, he owns Integrity Paint and General Contracting, serving the East Bay. 

Mary is the Executive Director at Berkeley Playhouse. She loves music, theatre and ceramics. Simon has great friends, enjoys life, has a big heart for others, and is an elite swimmer at University Virginia. Josie is the spice of the family and always has a song in her heart, that fills the house. She loves drama, singing, food, and spending time with her friends. She is in 11th grade and is excited about college and the real world.
