Rev. Ben Turner
Lead Pastor

Hello, I’m Pastor Ben Turner, Lead Pastor of the Five Mile Family. Melodie and I have walked alongside this church family since 2003. Our sons grew up here with loving Christian friends. Our mothers lived with us in their last years and were blessed by these wonderful people. We invite you to discover friendship, spiritual depth, and fellowship at Five Mile. We call Five Mile a family because that is what you will experience when you come here. From the parking lot to the sanctuary, you will be greeted by people who care about you!

In recent years, God has brought us refugees to care for and to share the work of Christ with. Ukrainian refugees are pouring into Idaho, as are those from African nations. As this has occurred, Five Mile has begun to change to a multi-ethnic church! Whatever God puts in front of us, we will continue to do for His glory!

In Psalm 68:6 David says that “God sets the lonely in families.” This could be the family in which He places you as you move through your spiritual journey. Hope to see you soon!

Pastor Ben and Melodie
