Counting On's Ben Seewald got himself a long-awaited job in 2017
Ben and Jessa Seewald have been living off their Counting On paychecks, but it seems that with baby No. 2 on the way, the couple has decided it's time to plan for the future. After all, as the Duggar family knows well at this point, a reality TV career can quickly come crashing down.
According to The Hollywood Gossip, Seewald is starting 2017 off by building his career as a... wait for it... preacher! The position is absolutely fitting considering the family's well-known conservative values. Not to mention their willingness to be outspoken about their beliefs.
The website reports Seewald is scheduled to preach for the Evangelism Reformation Conference in Hurst, Texas, on June 16 and 17.
No word yet whether Seewald is planning to expand his conference speaking skills or if he's hoping to find a parish of his own in the coming months.
Meanwhile, the Duggar family is prepping for the return of their show in January, which means Seewald's journey to preacher status could be documented on the reality show this year.
It's definitely going to be a big 2017 for the family. Wife Jessa is due to have her second child in just a few weeks. Jill Duggar is also expecting her second baby while Anna and Jinger Duggar pregnancy rumors are rampant.

Counting On returns with new episodes Jan. 16 at 9/8c on TLC.
Do you think Ben Seewald should be doing more to support his growing family or is his preaching gig a step in the right direction?
