Benson and Cathy are missionary educators at the Seminary of South America (SEMISUD) in Quito, Ecuador.
Benson, a third-generation ordained bishop in the Church of God, worked as a public-school teacher in Maryland, and Cathy was a medical technologist and worked in hospitals in Maryland and Tennessee. They developed a love for international students while they both attended and graduated from Pentecostal Theological Seminary. During the past 20 years, they have served as missionary educators in over 30 countries on five continents. Benson completed his Ph.D. from the University of Birmingham (UK) and published a book about the music of the Church of God, and Cathy is presently working on her Ph.D. from South African Theological Seminary.
Benson and Cathy believe in planting seeds into the lives of young men and women who will one day go into many countries of the world to spread the Gospel.
