Welcome to Ellis Baptist Association (EBA) Church Plant page.

EBA is in the Ellis County area, located in the southern part of the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW). DFW is the fourth largest metropolitan area, only smaller than New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago. DFW is the second fastest growing metropolitan area in the U.S. This means DFW has lots of people and people are still moving here. Ellis County has experienced substantial growth in the northern section of the county. The county is mixture of rural, small towns and suburbia. It is also economically, educationally and racially diverse.


Church planting is essential to reach the ever growing and diverse population. EBA engages in traditional church plants and simple church plants. Simple churches include but are not limited to house churches. Other simple churches are often established through affinity groups.

Simple Church Net is EBAs network to assist simple churches. Please click here to learn more about simple churches in Ellis County.

For additional information concerning church planting please contact Richard Cody or the associational office.
