*No Longer Bound Alumnus
Our New Executive Director
With the start of the new year, Ben Tison was named Executive Director of No Longer Bound.
Ben graduated from Georgia Tech with a B.A. in Management Science and an MBA. He started his career at RaceTrac Petroleum, ascending to Senior Vice President and guiding store expansion from 225 to 400 stores nationwide. Then at the height of this thriving career, Ben decided to take a timeout.
“I wanted to learn how to help people incorporate their faith more fully into their lives, especially their work lives,” he said.
In 2008, Ben moved his family from Atlanta to Texas, where he enrolled at Dallas Theological Seminary. After earning a master’s degree in theological studies, he took a position with 7-Eleven, ultimately serving as Senior Vice President of Development and Acquisition Integration.
He has long had a desire to meet people in their time of need, while guiding them in their relationship with Christ. He feels No Longer Bound presents a unique opportunity to help men in a world class addiction recovery environment while guiding them in their spiritual development.
Ben has been married to his wife Lauren for 29 years. Lauren has her master’s in Clinical Mental Health counseling and specializes in childhood and adolescent trauma. Through her experience, Ben understands quite a bit about the clinical side of our program. They have two sons, 25-year-old Knox who is a Veterinarian Technician and Boone who is a senior at Furman University. Ben and Lauren live in Cumming and attend Browns Bridge Church.
