Thank you for your incredible support of our Global Missionaries. The United Pentecostal Church exists to spread the whole Gospel, to the whole World, by the Whole Church. This means that every church in our district can help us spread the Gospel, by supporting our missionaries as they travel through Kentucky.
Our goal is to have the twelve months of the 2020 deputation schedule for our 24 missionaries coming to Kentucky completed by January 1, 2020. In order to make this possible, we are giving you as much information as we can to help you in choosing and scheduling missionaries.
You can have missionaries for a full service or just give them 10-15 minutes in a service. If you can’t afford to have them for a service - consider doing a hosting/offering only.
A hosting would involve ONE or a combination of any of these three things: (1) Take the missionaries out to eat on a night you don’t have service, (2) Place them in a hotel at your expense, or (3) Give the missionaries an offering of at least $100. We are asking every church in the district to have two missionary engagements (services or hostings) in 2020 whatever is most convenient for you.
The Kentucky District is centrally located in the the United States and we do a terrific job of hosting missionaries. In Kentucky, there are untapped resources of blessings for both our churches and missionaries. I believe that God is going to bless our churches and missionaries with great revival this year!

Michael and Danan Benson
Missionary, Africa, Benin, Central African Republic
In 2003, the Benson family began their active involvement in Global Missions as Aimers to the island of Madagascar. After experiencing the incredible revival taking place in Madagascar, the Bensons felt that the Lord was leading them to carry His Truth to Central African Republic and continue to build upon the foundation that Missionary Randy Adams, Area Coordinator of West Africa, had begun in 2002. Responding to the leading of the Spirit, they applied for an Intermediate Missionary Appointment to this nation. They were appointed by the United Pentecostal Church as global missionaries to the Central African Republic in February 2007.
The Benson family arrived in Togo in December 2008 to begin their first 4 year term in West Africa. They immediately began studying the French Language by attending language school, as well as private tutoring. As their language progressed, they were able to further their involvement in the work in Togo through both teaching and evangelization in several capacities: Bible School, Crusades, Seminars, Sunday School, Ladies Ministry, Children’s Ministry, as well as Radio Evangelism.
The Bensons feel that their time in Togo, as well as Madagascar, has been invaluable to the plan of God for their lives, preparing them for the work in the Central African Republic. The Bensons will be the first UPCI resident missionaries in this nation. They are scheduled to begin their second deputation in January 2013, and they hope to arrive as resident missionaries in Bangui, Central African Republic in late 2014 or early 2015.
