Discover why Jeannie Benger from Derbyshire has been described as “an amazing pastor” and role model by the woman who nominated her. SHARON BARNARD reports 

On the face of it, Jeannie Benger is an ordinary woman carrying out God’s work as a lead pastor with her husband Paul at Christian Life Church in Chesterfield.

But according to Ally Rodgers, who has nominated her for an Inspire Award, Jeannie is “an amazing rock to us all”.

Ally says that despite Jeannie’s own health problems (she has suffered from crippling migraines for years) she has always put herself out for others.

“I have food issues due to a medical condition. Jeannie went out of her way to provide safe food just for me by consulting with me and the chef so I could go to a women’s evening at the church.

“Jeannie recently organised her first women's weekend conference called ‘Imagine’ with fab touches for us all including perfume/pampering items in the ladies loo and ribbon-wrapped notebooks and chocolates for all attendees. 

“She organises food hampers for needy people and pamper packs for cancer sufferers at Christmas.  She is our main pastoral carer and helps with all the problems in our flock. She is always caring, nurturing and never criticises.

“She oozes love for us all and is one genuinely compassionate, caring and amazing pastor. I love her dearly.”

Jeannie admits that as well as the debilitating migraines which are now kept at bay with medication, she has also had to overcome shyness in order to reach people with the message of Jesus and help to make a difference in their lives. 

“The vision of our church is human flourishing, which means that everything we do is geared towards helping people succeed in life.

“Some of my greatest joys are seeing people move forward as they overcome issues in life that would make them less than who they are meant to be, and begin to live a life with greater purpose and possibility.”
