One-hundred and twenty-five years ago, a young man with a calling on his heart to follow God answered that call by traveling to Franklin County and planting a seed. That seed would grow and produce good fruit that eventually blossomed into what is known as Mount Rock Brethren in Christ Church in Shippensburg.
Benjamin B. Musser was born in Lancaster County, and felt a calling on is heart at the tender age of 14 while attending school. According to church history, Musser was sitting in the classroom with his fellow classmates when a burden became so heavy on his heart that he asked his teacher for permission to go home. When the teacher asked him why he wanted to go home, the young boy told her he was troubled about his soul.
