Ben Homan, President

Ben Homan, president of The Langham Partnership USA, joins David Capes to talk about the mission and history of one of the most important partnerships supporting the equipping of preachers and teachers across the world (  In 2020 they trained over 30,000 pastors who have never had any formal training in Bible, theology or preaching.  They have helped over 300 scholars from the majority world to earn their PhDs in quality universities and seminaries and return to their countries of origins.  They are active in more than 130 majority world nations (Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East).  The Lanier Theological Library and Foundation are proud to join hands in this important work.

The Stone Chapel is a podcast of the friends and staff of the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, Texas.  It is hosted by Dr. David Capes, Senior Research Fellow at the library and former faculty member at Houston Baptist University and Wheaton College.  The purpose of the podcast is to bring to our audience great conversations from the world’s leading experts in theology, biblical studies, archaeology, Church history, the Dead Sea Scrolls, ethics, ministry, and a host of other topics close to the mission of the library.

The Lanier Theological Library is a magnet for scholars, church leaders and influencers.  For the last ten years, it has welcomed hundreds of academics and church leaders from across the globe for public lectures, study, panel discussions, consultations, and encouragement.
