Ben Elenbaas - Director of Marketing and Programming

Ben comes to us via Calvin College where he graduated with a degree in Accounting and a minor in Sport Management. An avid University of Michigan fan, Ben brings his youth and creativity to our social media pages, and our programming. His vision for the future includes offering many different sports leagues, and building big events that can become a staple of what we do here at the Christian Athletic Complex. Being the second best golfer in the office is a burden, but Ben gets over it by planning fun, unique golf events for others to challenge his greatness. If you have ideas of new sports to add to the facility, or ways to improve things, reach out to him and he will listen to what you have to say! In his free time Ben enjoys all different types of water sports, watching and playing many sports, and coaching. As an active member of his church in Byron Center, Ben has been involved as a youth group leader for the past 4 years.
