Ben Field – Admissions Director
B.S. in Bible, Manhattan Christian College, 2013
B.S. in Communication Studies, Kansas State University, 2013
MCC Start Date: September 2018
What I like about MCC: MCC is a special place. The family atmosphere, commitment to training up Christian leaders, and terrific staff are just a few of the many reasons I love my alma mater. I also love the uniqueness of having a Bible College across the street from a Division 1 University. There’s nothing like it in the country.
About me: I love all things sports, reading, preaching, diet mountain dew, and spending time with friends and family. I’m a huge fan of Kansas Basketball and can do a pretty good Bill Self impersonation.
Kevin Foster – Admissions Counselor
B.S. Cross Cultural Studies, Manhattan Christian College
MCC Start Date: April 2020
What I like about MCC: Manhattan Christian College is Family! It was the place I learned so much about my relationship with God and how to be a better man and kingdom worker. Trained/equipped me to be a true servant of God. The relationships built with basketball teammates and coaches, faculty and staff that have carried past graduation have been one of the greatest highlights to why I LOVE MCC!
About Me: I was raised in Helena Montana, I absolutely love the outdoors. Fishing, hunting, camping, but I am also a sport fanatic. Played basketball all four years in college, and am a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers and San Antonio Spurs fan. Now, I am blessed by God to spend my time with the love of my life Karis Foster. She is the better half of me and we love spending every second together loving and serving for the Kingdom of God in many different ways.

Allie Hammack – Admissions Counselor
Bachelor of Social Work (BSW), Florida State University, 2015
Master of Social Work (MSW), Florida State University, 2016
MCC Start Date: April 2020
What I like about MCC: I was introduced to MCC through my husband who attended school and played basketball here. Though I did not attend MCC myself, I was eagerly adopted into the family atmosphere! Between friends from Ben’s MCC days to the current staff, I’ve been so encouraged in my faith and affirmed that God has called us here. Coming from FSU, the uniqueness of having a Bible College across the street from a Division 1 University is incredible. I look forward to watching God use MCC students to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ, regardless of their chosen profession!
About Me: I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia and my family lived many different places growing up because my mom was a travel nurse. We landed in Florida when I was in middle school, and then I stayed through college (Go Noles!). I moved back to my hometown after college for work, and there I met my husband, Ben. We love our dog (a dalmatian mix named Oscar), good coffee, watching sports, and serving in our local church.
Halley Thompson – Administrative Assistant for Admissions
MCC Start Date: July 2021
What I like about MCC: Manhattan Christian College staff, students and faculty truly care about everyone who takes the time to visit campus. You’re welcomed by kind faces and people who want to foster a relationship with you. There is a personalized touch that you feel when you interact with staff, students and faculty and it makes you feel heard and important. Since my first day here I’ve felt all these things and truly feel like I’ve been welcomed into the MCC family!
About Me: I was born in Emporia, Kansas but my family moved to Great Falls, Montana when I was two years old, so I call Montana home. I moved to Manhattan in January 2020 and I’ve enjoyed getting to know the town and the people in it. I love spending time with family, when we’re able to visit one another and spending quality time with friends as well as exploring the outdoors. I genuinely enjoy music and getting lost in a good book and have a weakness for pizza and chocolate! I serve at my local church and co- lead a life group and it’s amazing seeing God’s hand on all things in my life!
