Desert Hills Lutheran Church is fortunate to have a staff of skilled and caring individuals who assist the congregation and handle the day-to-day operations. In addition, DHLC is led by our Congregational Council, which consists of nine members elected by the congregation. Each council member serves a three-year term, and terms are arranged so that the terms of one-third of the members expire annually.

Meet Ben Nelson, our Technical Assistant, who joined the Desert Hills Lutheran Church family on July 13, 2020. Ben is blessed beyond measure to not only have the opportunity to work for a place that allows him to provide for his family, but also allows him to fulfill his calling in serving in ministry.

Ben was a stagehand for the Fred Fox School of Music at the University of Arizona and served as a flyman for the Arizona Theatre Company. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Production from the University of Arizona with an emphasis in Technical Direction.

Ben coordinates online services and assists with our technology projects. He is enjoying the chance to grow our online services and viewing opportunities, creating new and exciting ways to spread the Gospel to our community and families.

Ben is married to his lovely wife, Mikayla, and they have two dogs, Ophelia and Zero. Ben enjoys hiking and socializing with friends in his free time.

We welcome Ben to our DHLC family and look forward to working closely with him in the years to come.
