Here is who works at Sullivan First UMC:



Rev. Ben Cassiday

Ben grew up being a camper in the Indiana Conference Methodist Camping system for many many summers. In fact, he enjoyed camp so much, he worked at Pine Creek Camp for 5 summers! There he met his lovely wife, Eva. It was one of those summers, as a camper at Epworth Forest during Senior High Institute, that Ben first felt his call to ministry. Ben enjoys camping, superhero movies, comic books, and hopes to instill some of his “nerdiness” in his son, Micah!

Ben graduated from Hanover College with a degree in Theatre and then attended Asbury Theological Seminary where he received his Masters in Divinity. Ben was ordained in the United Methodist Church on May 28, 2015 – his 30th birthday!

He has been in pastoral ministry since June of 2012. If you want to read his sermons since then, they are available to read on his sermon blog,
