Meet Our Team of Addiction Professionals


Ben Parrish

Director


Growing up in Knoxville, TN, Ben went to the University of Tennessee.

After years in active addiction and recovery, Ben attended Our Master’s Camp . His stay at Our Master’s Camp was not only the catalyst for his finding freedom from addiction through Jesus Christ, but also the inspiration that led to him becoming a full time addiction professional.

After serving as the OMC administrator for over three years, he was asked to become the director in early 2016. His experience and love for helping men, along with his love for Christ enable him to help guide men on their path of recovery.

Having achieved many years of sobriety, Ben is passionate about using his personal recovery experience to help the men at Our Master’s Camp. Ben plays a role in admissions, leading classes and groups, and twelve step work.

He has been employed with Providence Ministries for four years.

In all things, Ben operates with the understanding “so if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed”. John 8:36.
