Pastor Ben & Mandy Cloud

Pastor Ben Cloud is Lead Pastor and Teaching Pastor at Amadeo.  Ben is married to Mandy and they have four beautiful (at least to them) children.

Ben graduated from Northern Arizona University with a BA in English, an MA in Applied linguistics and served as a High School English teacher for five years. Ben is a certified K-12 Principal and in certified in Educational Leadership.  After his teaching years he then worked in software development with Pearson and General Dynamics where he helped test and develop software for another nine years.  While he worked as a software engineer, Ben was the Student Ministries pastor at Vineyard Community Church for five years when he felt God calling him to plant Amadeo Church. (Truth is, the staff at VCC came to Ben and told him that he  was who they felt was called to plant a church.)  Ben completed his Masters of Ministry with St. Stephens University while also planting and growing Amadeo Church.  He has been pastoring AMADEO church for 12 years and helped a partnership plant a church in Tanzania.

Ben hopes to plant 40 churches in 40 years, but his prayer request to God is to plant the first one in the states by 2020.
