Ben & Alicia Ramos // Senior Pastors
Benjamin was born and raised in Everett, Washington. After six years of drug abuse and addiction, his life was radically transformed when meeting Jesus while behind bars at the Snohomish County Jail. From the moment of this initial encounter, Ben’s life has been marked by experiencing the real power of our real God. Soon after meeting Jesus, Ben began serving in various ministry roles, including an assisting role with the Mill Creek Foursquare Church Internship and an associate role with Ignite Global Ministries. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and Pastoral Leadership, Ben came on staff at Mill Creek Foursquare Church in Mill Creek, Washington as the Young Adult Pastor. During this time, he also participated in the Foursquare Church Planting Cohort. In September of 2015, Ben transitioned into a role as the Lead Pastor of South Everett Foursquare Church. After two and a half years at the helm, Jesus called him and his family to South East Idaho. In July of 2018, the Ramos family made the move to Rigby, ID. After a transition year, they became senior pastor of what is now Rise Church in 2019.
Ben is married to Alicia, who worked off and on as a Registered Nurse for 10 years. She is now working part time as a triage RN, homeschooling the kiddos, serving in various ministry roles and on our Executive Team. They have five children; Zadok, Gracey, Ezriella, Adaliah and Hannah! The Ramos family serves Rise with faith and expectation to see God do a radical work in South Eastern Idaho Region!
