Rev. Ben Turner
Lead Pastor

Hello, I’m Pastor Ben Turner, Lead Pastor of the Five Mile Family. 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 Antonio, Herman, Mike, Krista, Judy, and many others who want you to know you are welcome to the family.

Our family moved to Boise in 2003.  Prior to that Melodie and I served in churches in Alaska, Colorado, Kansas, and Utah. Melodie and I are pleased to have both of our moms living with us, Frankie and Eula.

Our sons are all grown up and married now. Micah went to NNU and married the love of his life, Mallory. They now have two sweet daughters who get a lot of brag time on Gramma and Grampa's Facebook page.

Phillip is married to Britney, and we are happy they have moved back to Idaho after college in Oregon. They both are working hard on their educational goals.

God has richly blessed us with a loving family, as well as a great church family.

We love our church family at Five Mile. We've journeyed with them for over a decade now, and our fellowship is sweeter each day. We are anxious for others to know the blessings of this church family. We invite you to discover friendship and fellowship at Five Mile.

In Psalm 68:6 David says that “God sets the lonely in families.” We believe that is true, especially at Five Mile! We invite you. This could be the family in which He places you as you move through your spiritual journey.

Hope to see you Sunday!

Pastor Ben
