Ben Yosua-Davis hosts a podcast called “Reports from the Spiritual Frontier”, which chronicles the day-to-day lives of those who are innovating new forms of spiritual community in the United States. He is also worship leader for the Two Year Academy for Spiritual Formation, a two-year formation process in the foundations of Christian spirituality, which welcomes leading spiritual thinkers from across the ecumenical spectrum.

Previously, he lived in Haverhill, MA, where he co-planted a new church called The Vine. It was one of the earliest mainline missional church expressions, gathering in homes and coffee shops, hosting Free Markets, game nights, and block parties, and working as a community partner to make its city a better place to live.

He now lives on Chebeague Island, ME with his wife, Melissa, and their children, Michael and Genevieve, where he directs the community chorus, hosts Dungeons and Dragons for island children, and delivers tins of cookies to unsuspecting neighbors. When not wearing one of his myriad hats or hanging out with his son, you’ll probably find him reading comics, watching basketball, or pretending that he’s a competent gardener.
