The passion of the Wood family has always been to see people come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and for God to receive the worship that He deserves. We want people to know and experience the freedom, love, peace, and joy that come when you surrender your life to Jesus. This has led our family to partner with Zoe and pursue ministry in Thailand.
Ben graduated from Northwestern Bible College with a Biblical studies degree in 2001. He has always had a heart for cross-cultural ministry and has led over 20 short term mission trips. He has worked as a youth pastor, associate pastor, and spent two years living in North Africa among an unreached people group working in church planting. He is excited to be a part of the Zoe family and to see God glorified in Thailand!
Jen also graduated from Northwestern Bible College with a degree in Elementary Education. Her passion in life is for children and seeing each child reach his or her fullest potential. She has been a kindergarten teacher for fourteen years. Two of those years were spent in North Africa church planting and volunteering at an International School as a language tutor. Jen is excited to work with Zoe and share her love for teaching as a volunteer kindergarten teacher at Grace International School.
Ben and Jen have been blessed with four beautiful and healthy children: Isaiah, Adeline, Hayley and Galilee. All four children are looking forward to living and ministering in Thailand alongside their parents.
