The Rev. Benjamin P. Snoek is Director of the University Chapel at Asbury University. A proud Michigander, Ben graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with an M.A. in biblical and theological studies and a B.S. in worship ministries. He is pursuing a Ph.D. in theology at Columbia Seminary, where his research explores liturgical formation through university chapel worship.
An ordained minister in the Christian Reformed Church, Ben joined the Asbury community in 2020—a de facto member of the Courageous Class—as the Assistant Chaplain for Worship. Prior to working in higher education administration, Ben served rural parishes and suburban megachurches in Michigan and Indiana as a pastor, worship leader, and musician. Ben is privileged to work with an amazing group of colleagues in the Student Development Division, all of whom care deeply about shaping students into kingdom-minded followers of Jesus, and is grateful to serve students at a vital season in their faith formation.
In addition to his work with the University Chapel, Ben teaches as a part-time faculty member in the Department of Christian Studies and Philosophy. He is also an active string orchestra composer with award-winning music published internationally. His music has won national awards and composition contests and has been performed around the world, from Bolivia to Spain to the Philippines to Australia. Ben is excited to be an Asburian and to call Wilmore home.
