Jason Benjamin is the trumpet player and director of the Milton Street Revival Band, providing music for our Sunday worship services and special holidays and events. He also writes music-theological blogs for the church’s website.
Jason lead bands while growing up in Michigan. In 2007 he and his wife Rachael joined the small congregation at Greenpoint Reformed. At the time a decrepit pipe organ provided the music. Jason felt that music with more vitality and a contemporary approach would reflect the congregation and pastors Ann and Jen’s passion. He was appointed Music Minister in 2009.
While working in education non-profit management, Jason simultaneously earned an MA in Music in 2012 from Hunter College. He also holds a BA in English from Michigan State. Jason and Rachael are the proud parents of Louisa, Elliot and Silas.
