Jennifer Bonessi leads Fuller Church Planting Initiative's admin, communications and marketing efforts - so you’ll be hearing from her - with decades of experience in marketing. Passionate about women's ministry, she has led numerous marriage, parenting and women's Bible studies as well as a MOPS group through Hill Country Bible in Austin, TX, a prolific planting church in the suburbs, where she was a long-time member. She currently attends Redeemer Lutheran - a smaller, urban congregation seeking revival - with her husband and seven kids in tow.
"We do not simply wake up one day and decide to plant a church. In response to the call that God has been forming in us over many years (and possibly decades) before we ever considered starting a new church, we then train—much like athletes train—to live into that call."
—Len Tang, Director of the Fuller Church Planting Initiative
