SOGOM Harvest Caldwell, Liberia
Augustus Ben was raised by a Christian mother but did not come to Christ until facing intense trial because of the civil war in Liberia. Several years after his conversion, Augustus felt a conviction to preach God’s Word in the community. Each morning he told others about Christ and entered the Baptist Theological Seminary to begin formal training.
In 2007, Augustus began attending Harvest Paynesville. Senior Pastor Moses Wheigar recognized his God-given gifts and began mentoring him. Augustus sang in the choir, served as a small group leader, and increasingly grew into other significant leadership roles. He is called by the Lord to implement the Great Commission by preaching the Word of God and making disciples throughout Liberia. Harvest Caldwell was launched in 2012.
