Ben & Sarah Sanders - Directors of the Campus Christian Center (C3)

Arizona natives, Ben and Sarah first met in 1980 at a prayer meeting at Quo Vadis Books in Tempe while students at Arizona State University.  They were married in 1983, and have a daughter, Rebekah. Over the years, they have focused their prayers and ministry on the ASU campus and surrounding community by encouraging the Body of Christ to be “fitly joined together” (Ephesians 4:15-16).  Their guiding purpose is to seek Biblical unity among Christians to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.*
