Church Planting for God's Mission
Western Seminary Course

Ben is honored to participate in occasional public and private events each year, at times together with Jess. Whether speaking at an event or church, doing virtual consulting, or facilitating a workshop for a specific staff or organization, Ben and Jess are often asked to train on these topics, and the gospel and its implications in each:

  • Gospel-Centered Life and Preaching

  • Everyday Mission and Contextualization

  • Self-Awareness and Your Role

  • Team Ministry and Dynamics

  • Starting a Church Planting Residency

  • Organizational Vision and Culture

  • Pastors' Wives' Health and Roles

  • Pastoral Families' Care and Sustainability

  • ...and they love teaching the Bible!


Click the request button below if you'd like Ben and/or Jess to join in your event. (*Note: While we prayerfully consider each request, travel is limited each month and typically books six to nine months in advance.) 


Ben Connelly is Director of Training for Saturate and Soma, leads Plant Fort Worth, and is co-planting Salt+Light Community in 2021.


He and Jess met doing student ministry in Waco, TX, then moved to Fort Worth where they planted The City Church  (Acts 29/ Soma) in 2009. Now, after over 20 years serving local churches together, they train disciple-makers and planter couples across the world, as well as churches/ organizations with a desire for sending.


They live in Fort Worth, TX with their three kids, and host short-term foster placements, each on his/her way toward reunification or adoption.


Ben has written/contributed to several books, workbooks, articles, and publications, and has also taught university and seminary classes.


I'm honored to work with some of the best folks on earth. Here are a few of them
