My name is Ben Caldwell and I became a member of Watermark in 2005 where I later met the love of my life, Terri Caldwell, while serving in our community ministry. We have four young children that bring me great joy while regularly reminding me of my need for God’s grace, patience and wisdom! When not serving on our Dallas campus, I build houses for a living and feel privileged to work with incredibly talented people to create beautiful things to the glory of God.
I grew up in Plano, Texas and while we attended a mainline denominational church periodically, it was not until my freshman year of high school that I began to be curious about spiritual things. The Lord was drawing me to Himself and through a weeklong summer trip with a local youth group, I placed my faith in Jesus to save me from the wages of my sin (death) and make me a new creation.
The following year of high school, in His kindness, God placed a faithful Christian man in my life as my chemistry teacher. That man intentionally invested in me, like a spiritual father, helping me to grow in my new relationship with Jesus while inviting others to know the God who was radically changing my life.
I am convinced there is no greater joy than to walk daily with Jesus and in response to His goodness, live out 2 Timothy 2:2 “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”
