Words Of Restoration Ministries:From The Beginning
Founded by Pastor John F. Benton in March 2007. Beginning with a small group of people in the home of Pastor John, for bible study and prayer, Words of restoration was born. In July 2007 The Ministry moved into a store from building for nearly a year, the ministry was in desperate need of more space.
Anxiously seeking a larger facility for the ever growing ministry became almost impossible. After countless meetings and denials from banks and mortgage companies the chance for a more accommodating building seemed to be out of the question.
