Enjoying His GRACE
Preaching His BIBLE
Building His CHURCH

Ben Shannon

Ben is the planting pastor of Grace Bible Church Corinda. You might wonder how a boy from the northside ends up planting a church in the west from a church in the south? He married into Grace Bible Church Holland Park in 2005 after meeting his wife at university. Together they wanted to serve by planting a church.

Ben studied chemistry at university before working in petrol and convenience retail for a number of years. A couple of years as a Ministry Apprentice was followed by studying a Masters of Divinity at the Queensland Theological College, graduating in 2012. A few months of ministry experience was gained at Holland Park before launching the church plant in July 2013.

He likes to relax with anything mind-numbing and has quite an eclectic taste in music (which might sometime come through in his Bible talks, but he’s not sure if anyone notices).
