  • Seeing Jesus Clearly

    Matthew 6:22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light,”


Thank you for visiting us today. My hope would be that as you navigate through our website and learn about who we are as a church, you would see that our church is defined by much more than doctrine or vision. We are a church built on relationships, relationships with one another, absolutely, but more importantly, relationships with Jesus Christ.  Our desire is that you would find Luminous Church to be a place where you can feel safe to build relationships, and by doing so, you would clearly see the light of Jesus and would know the infinite depth of his love for you.

Please, feel free to email us with any questions you may have, and I look forward to meeting you soon.

Our Mission

We exist to release our resources (time, talent, and treasure) to reach the campus, the community and the world with the light of Jesus Christ.

Our Values


(There is room at Luminous for you to take a look and see what it is all about.)


(Matthew 28:19 We believe when Jesus said, ‘Go Make Disciples’ that this was for all Jesus followers)


(Matthew 17:20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”)


(Revelation 7:9-10  After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”)


(Ecclesiastes 8:15  So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life.)


When we can take an accurate assessment of ourselves, and let other people in on that process we become more like Jesus.


You are born into a biological family, and you are adopted into a spiritual family! These both are very important!


Use what you have been given, and let people see Jesus Clearly.

Our Team

Ben Chapman

Ben Chapman

Lead Pastor

In 2008, God began stirring in Ben and Brandie Chapman’s hearts to plant a church in San Antonio. In 2012, Peter Dusan, pastor of Christ Community Church in San Marcos, Texas called the Chapmans to see if they had ever considered coming to San Antonio. The Chapmans saw God’s hand moving in many ways, from getting them out of debt, to giving them many confirmations that San Antonio was where they were meant to go. Now, six years after the dream of starting a church in San Antonio was placed in their hearts, they are seeing that dream come true. They are excited to join God in what he is doing in this city and with the people of Luminous Church.

Austin Fontenot

Campus Minister

Austin never understood the importance of reaching the college campus with the Gospel until he was reached while on a college campus. He quickly realized that if you can reach the campus, you can easily reach the community, and ultimately, the world. He came to San Antonio in 2012 after he felt the call of God to plant an Every Nation Campus college group at the University of Texas at San Antonio, and through that step of obedience he has seen many lives changed and many students introduced to the love of God. Austin is excited to see how God will continue to use him and ENC UTSA to reach the campus and the world with the love of God.

Ashley Brooks

Worship Leader

During Ashley’s sophomore year in high school, she began singing on the worship team in her youth ministry, and two years later she felt the call to full time worship ministry. Since that day, she has sought after God’s heart, so that she could begin to grow into the woman that He wants her to be. She attended and graduated from Hillsong International Leadership College, and she has also been leading youth worship for 5 years. Ashley says that every time she get on a platform, she learns something new about the Father’s heart and about what it means to worship him. She is excited to see all that God does at Luminous and in San Antonio through worship.
