Ben Elliott

Ben delights in using song to encourage the gathered church to behold and exalt the glory of God, revealed in Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit. A native of Fishersville in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, he served as pianist of Tabernacle Presbyterian Church in Waynesboro, VA and helped lead music for five years at Hope Presbyterian Church in Bloomington, IN before coming to APC.

Ben holds undergraduate and master’s degrees in piano performance from Indiana University, where he worked as an associate instructor, collaborated regularly with the choral and ballet departments, accompanied numerous singers and instrumentalists, and additionally studied mathematics and the pipe organ. He enjoys practicing, reading, playing soccer, hiking, and supporting the sports teams of IU (with his colleagues) and Pittsburgh (with his extended family).
