Rev. Benjamin Peña, Alabama chapter director for the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, died Thursday, May 14, in Birmingham, Alabama, announced the NHCLC. He was 56.

Mrs. Sandra A. Acosta, wife of Rev. Peña, informed the NHCLC that he passed on to be with the Lord after a one-week bout with pulmonary complications caused by COVID-19. Rev. Peña is survived by his wife Sandra and his five children, Avdiel, John, Daniel, Alexandra and Eric.

“I’m heartbroken by the news of the passing of our brother and co-laborer, Rev. Peña,” said Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of NHCLC. “He was an influential leader within the NHCLC and advanced the Lamb’s agenda throughout his region. Our peace comes from knowing that yesterday morning he heard the words ‘Well done.'”

Born in Mexico City, Rev. Peña led a long, fruitful career as a pastor, missionary, schoolteacher, dean and ministry leader. He joined the NHCLC as the Alabama chapter director in 2017, and within three years he became one of the strongest and most efficient chapter directors in the movement.
