The Friday 5 : Sawyer Bengtson

The Friday 5

Each week we are highlighting someone at Mission who will answer 5 questions! Our church may be growing, but getting to know your neighbors should never be hard to do.


Sawyer Bengtson

The Facts: I am 18 years old and just graduated from Fort Mill High School. I am currently attending Tribeca Flashpoint to get my degree in film and broadcast.

1. In one word how would your friends describe you?

When my friends describe me in one word, they say that I'm a pleasure to be around. I try to live life with a positive outlook. I am always happy and joyful and try to rub that off on everyone that I see.

2. What is playing on your radio, iPod, etc?

My absolute favorite thing to listen to is my home church, Elevation Worship. Their songs remind me everyday how grateful I should be that I had the chance to go to that church and soak up everything that I heard and experienced. But every once and a while when I am feeling like a rebel I listen to Justin Bieber.

3. Who is the person who has had the biggest impact on your life?

The person that has had the biggest impact in my life has to be my friend Hunter. Hunter is a person that I met through my brother Walker. If I ask him any question I know that he will answer it in a genuine way, because he is a genuine guy.

4. Your last meal on earth would be where?

Any one who knows me well know that I always want Portillos. I always want Portillos, and everything on there menu is delicious!

5. What is one thing you love about Mission?

One thing that I love about Mission is the people in it. If you don't have the right people in the church, and especially running the church, it's not a church worth going to. And the staff at this church are phonemail, they know what they are doing, and they love doing it. And most importantly, they do life together. They hang out with each other outside of work hours, and they enjoy each others company.
