Amber Benson

Executive Pastor

As the Executive Pastor, Amber oversees operations at Lifegate as well as our women’s ministry, Lifegate Ladies. Like most women she wears many hats but her favorite are wife and mom. She loves her plants, reading a book with a hot cup of coffee, and just hanging out with her family every chance she can get!
