Kwashi at first wanted to follow a military career but he felt a religious calling in 1976, and decided to follow a religious life. He was ordained an Anglican priest in 1982. He went to serve in several rural and urban parishes. He also would be Rector of a Theological College. In 1987, his church and vicariate were totally burned during Muslim riots. He became the first bishop of the newly created Anglican Diocese of Jos in 1992. In 2008, he was consecrated Archbishop of Jos Province in the Church of Nigeria. The province of Jos covers North Eastern Nigeria which has had several outbreaks of religious violence when Christians have been targeted by Islamist militants. The Archbishop has been outspoken and openly critical of the press and the authorities whenever he has witnessed lies and injustice. Such courage has come at a price, for Ben Kwashi has been personally targeted and his wife, Gloria, and son have been badly beaten.

Bishop Benjamin Kwashi of the Anglican Diocese, Jos, has advocated life imprisonment for any political office holder caught diverting funds allocated for the development of education, health matters and the economy.

Kwashi, who is also the Northern Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), made the call on Saturday in Abuja at the National Conference of Northern Nigerian Christian Politicians (NNCP)
He said that funds earmarked for the three sectors were important and their judicious usage would directly touch on the lives of the people.
"If money is allocated to develop education, the economy and health matters, please don't divert it.
"I want to propose that any politician who divert money allocated to these sectors should be served with life imprisonment," Kwashi said.
He urged politicians to use the opportunity offered them to assist the less privileged, street orphans, widows, the sick and the needy in the society because God cares for them.
