Benjamin Swann


Former columnist for Practical Homeschooling Magazine.

Benjamin Swann, age 20, son of Joyce Swann, has been a youth pastor for the last four years. Graduating with a Master's by age 16 enabled him to start on a pastoral career at the same age as the famous 19th century Baptist preacher, Charles Spurgeon, who, living in an equally degree-conscious world, solved the problem by not attending college at all!
