Benji Erica Jenkins 2022 websiteBenji grew up in Papua New Guinea where his parents served as missionaries until he was fourteen. After serving on multiple short-term mission trips, Benji felt God calling him to full-time service during a year-long stay in Honduras.

Erica grew up in a Christian home in southern Ohio and felt called to full-time mission work while attending Ohio Christian University. After serving together on a WGM task force to Paraguay, Benji and Erica knew they would minister together for the rest of their lives.

Benji returned to Papua New Guinea in 2003, this time as a married man. He and Erica were excited to serve where the Lord led, and they quickly found out that He would lead them in many directions. Throughout their nineteen-year ministry, Benji and Erica have served in various ministries including construction, education, administration, discipleship, and many others. In 2014 God once again led them in a new direction. Benji accepted the position of Area Team Leader for Papua New Guinea. He enjoyed leading the missionaries and growing the team in PNG.

In 2020 Benji was asked to broaden his vision for ministry once again and accepted leadership over Cambodia and South Korea. Benji and Erica enjoy serving missionaries in three countries, making sure they have the support they need to do what God has called them to do. They are also still involved in ministry with the local Papua New Guinean community.

Throughout all the changes in ministry, Benji and Erica have felt God using 2 Timothy 2:2 to guide them: “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others” (NIV). Whether through education ministry, discipleship, or leadership, the Jenkins desire to disciple those they serve, and enable them to disciple others.

Benji and Erica have four children: Cameron (born in 2004), Mark (2004), Chloe (2006), and Henry (2008).
