About Pastor Pierre Bennett
|Pastor Pierre Bennett acknowledges that being called for a lifetime of service to the Lord and others is a special honor, reserved for a select few. Dr. Bennett received that call on Easter morning in 1999 at the Upper Room International Church. But his relationship with the Lord began much earlier.
Pastor Pierre Bennett first learned God’s Word as a child, while sitting next to his grandmother in church. While his mother sang in the choir, the future Pastor Pierre Bennett was mesmerized by the church’s message, and a seed was planted deep in his soul. It was a seed that would stay with Pastor Pierre Bennett as he became an adult.
Pastor Pierre Bennett began his service to others in the armed services, with an honorable term in the United States Army. Once his military service was complete, Pastor Pierre Bennett entered the travel industry, starting in sales and quickly working his way to management. From the beginning, Pastor Pierre Bennett was struck by the absence of blacks in the industry. When Pastor Pierre Bennett opened his own travel club business, he became the only black owner in his industry. He remains the only black owner to this day.
Pastor Pierre Bennett’s travel club offers wholesale discounts to members, providing condos and resorts for up to 75 percent off. By researching its members’ year-long vacation patterns, Pastor Pierre Bennett and his staff are able to pre-purchase group reservations in advance that save individual members thousands of dollars each year. Additionally, Pastor Pierre Bennett’s members can obtain these discounts online or by calling booking agents.
It was while working in the travel industry that Pastor Pierre Bennett first received his calling to serve the Lord. While he’d always been active in the church, on Easter morning in 1999 Pastor Pierre Bennett was given a special impartation from the Lord that included a vision of worldwide care and service. Pastor Pierre Bennett continues to uphold that vision today, through the church he pastors, God’s Luv International Ministries Church, and his work with LifeSource Foundation. With LifeSource Foundation, Pastor Bennett provides academic enrichment, prevention and intervention programs to those in need, all as part of the Life Source ministry. Formerly assistant pastor at Upper Room International Church, Pastor Pierre Bennett has based his life’s mission on a favorite scripture, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.” Matt 6:33.
