Love God. Love People. Pastor Ray Bentley lived by those words, the mission statement for his life and Maranatha Chapel. His love for the Lord and the people he served was demonstrated every day through his actions, leadership, ministry, teaching, sharing, caring, and how he treated his family and friends.
Pastor Ray founded Maranatha Chapel in 1984. Today the church serves over 7,000 people locally. His ministry of teaching, preaching, writing, videos, and podcasts also reaches around the world. Pastor Ray’s family includes his father, Buck Bentley; his brother, Gregg; his wife, Vicki; their grown children, Annie and Daniel (married to Jill), and their seven grandchildren: Noah, Isaac, Bentley, Benjamin, Quinn, Andrew, and Haddyn.
