Dr. McKinney graduated from Baylor University and the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. He completed residency in Memphis, Tennessee at Resurrection Health Family Medicine Residency.

Dr. McKinney and his wife have two young daughters. Ben was radically transformed by the Grace of God prior to entering medical school and began to slowly understand God’s heart for the entire world, for His name to be made much of, and his unique love for the orphan, widow, sojourner and poor, as well as the pharisee.

He quickly learned how medicine can be used to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel and show the love of Christ to these populations.
