Bishop John L. Benford and First Lady Pleshette are the founders of the new international television ministry, FaithTime with Bishop. They formed Valley Harvest Ministries in Rogers, Arkansas, in 1998 where he is the Senior Pastor and she is Assistant Pastor. Elected into the Bishopric of the Convention of Covenanting Churches of Los Angeles, California, in 2000, Bishop Benford now serves as the Fifth Jurisdictional Bishop.
Bishop met his bride-to-be Pleshette 26 years ago in Pomona, California. They have been married 24 years and have been blessed with four beautiful children, Leslie, Dinah, Josh, and Jordan.
Bishop Benford’s teaching ministry has helped lead thousands to Christ. His life purpose is to show people how to achieve the abundant life that Christ spoke of in John 10:10.
