Ben Hallett

Worship Leader & Spiritual Growth Director


Ben has been working in local churches since 2008 and, in his own words, he ‘wouldn’t trade it’!  He spends his days at UMCL creating new, innovative, and engaging ways for people to grow their love and wisdom for God through worship and small groups.  Music is a big part of Ben’s spiritual life and you can find him on Sunday leading the Praise Team in our contemporary worship service.  Ben believes in building strong communities and he and his wife Jacqueline take every opportunity they can to make connections, support local businesses, and contribute to environmental restoration and conservation efforts. Originally from Indiana and having graduated from Purdue University, Ben now lives with Jacqueline in Libertyville with his two daughters, Emma and Linnea, a dog named Wednell and 12 nameless chickens. He loves the outdoors and loves to bicycle, hike, and camp and homesteading!
