Long Bio

PASTOR RAY BENTLEY FOUNDED MARANATHA CHAPEL IN AUGUST 1984 TEACHING A MID-WEEK BIBLE STUDY IN A RECREATION CENTER WITH 30 PEOPLE. NOW, MARANATHA SERVES 7,000 PEOPLE WEEKLY, AND RAY BENTLEY IS CONSIDERED A PROPHECY EXPERT, PUBLISHED AUTHOR, AND HOSTS HIS OWN DAILY RADIO SHOW.

Known for his ability to combine Scripture and historical context, Pastor Ray Bentley creates a truly rich and accurate picture of God’s Word. He believes the Bible is alive and meant to be experienced by the believer both in church and everyday life through the Holy Spirit. That belief stands true in his teaching as he guides listeners on a Scripture-filled journey, and, ultimately, helps them step into the story of God’s Word.

His teaching can be heard daily on Maranatha’s Radio Show which airs across the United States and worldwide. Pastor Ray has published six books, including his latest publication, “The Threshing Floor”, which sends the message of God’s hope through a moving tale set in the Holy Land of Israel.

He and his wife Vicki have been married for 40 years and together they have been blessed to serve in ministry with their two grown children along with their spouses, Daniel and Jill Bentley and Shawn and Annie Stone. Ray and Vicki also have six grandchildren they adore.
