My name is Ben Auger, and I'm the founding pastor of New Spirit Church. In 2021, God impressed upon my heart the need for more people to be reached, served, and saved in our area, and so He called me to plant the next chapter of His church. In 2022, my family began gathering people in our living room and building the church family. There's still so much to do and we're loving every minute of it. We welcome you to be a part of the journey with us! 

I am from Seattle, WA, and my wife Jen is from Ontario, Canada. We became best friends at Trinity Western University and got married after graduation. We worked and traveled overseas and then moved to Enumclaw so that I could accept a call to youth ministry and Jen could begin graduate courses in marriage and family counseling at Seattle Pacific University. 

Before planting NSC, I served in full-time ministry in Enumclaw for over a decade, earning a Master of Divinity degree from Liberty University along the way. 

Jen completed her Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy and opened a counseling practice in Enumclaw, where she helps people heal from personal and relational issues. 

We have three incredible children: Judah (11), Evangeline (10), and Moses (8). They love soccer, lacrosse, wrestling, music, drawing, and their church.

As a family, you can catch us planning our next trip to a national park or cooking ethnic foods from one of the 45 countries we've traveled to.
