Ben Shurtliff


We are incredibly blessed to have Pastor Ben as our senior pastor. His journey of ministry has been marked by a deep commitment to serving God's people. Pastor Ben first joined our church as the associate pastor, bringing his enthusiasm and dedication to the role. After five years, he felt called to expand his ministry and accepted the position of senior pastor at the Miami Springs Seventh-day Adventist Church. From there, his leadership skills and passion for spreading the gospel led him to the Brandon Seventh-day Adventist Church.

In the fall of 2022, much to the joy and excitement of our church members, Pastor Ben returned to the Port Charlotte SDA Church as our senior pastor. His experience and familiarity with our community have made him an invaluable asset in shepherding our congregation. Pastor Ben is not only a dedicated pastor but also a loving husband to his wife, Tria, and a caring father to their two children who are currently attending elementary school. We are grateful for his unwavering commitment to the spiritual growth and well-being of our church family.

Gavin Forbes


We are excited to welcome Pastor Gavin as our new associate pastor! With a fresh perspective and a heart filled with the love of God, Pastor Gavin joins us following his graduation from Union College in May 2023. Born and raised in the Orlando, FL area, he brings an understanding of our local community and its needs. Pastor Gavin's true passion lies in sharing and demonstrating God's love to everyone he encounters. We are eager to see how his ministry will help us grow closer to God and extend His love to the world around us. Please join us in warmly welcoming Pastor Gavin to our church family!
