Kacy Benson

Kacy Benson

Kacy’s passion for Christ, his heart for people, and his comedic perspective on life are contagious.  He has an earnest desire to see people surrender their lives to God.  With the combination of side-splitting humor, his life story, and the topics plaguing our culture, he reaches into their hearts and shares the love of Christ with every word he speaks.

In 2016, Kacy released his first book, “The Crash,” which recounts the harrowing true-life-story of his surviving a plane crash in the piney woods of East Texas.  With each chapter of the story including biblical parallels for the events of that fateful day, the book has gotten rave reviews.



They Came Running

They Came Running is a band from the Southeast corner of Tennessee that formed in the fall of 2007 as a local worship band. They quickly became known for their heart, passion, and excitement both on and off the stage, and so their ministry grew out of just the local worship scene into a broader one—both musically and regionally. They have shared the stage with bands such as G.R.I.T.S., Spoken, Nevertheless, Our Heart’s Hero, Mandisa, Casting Crowns, and Group One Crew, and have played and traveled extensively throughout the Eastern United States.
