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,”

Ben Chapman

Lead Pastor | Elders

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.
