In 1995, while in courtship with Elder Samuel Duncan IV, she would often visit the Lansing Church of God in Christ, and one grand day, the Lord saved her and filled her with the Holy Ghost and she has been running after God every since.

Benita has a strong passion for the Word of God and loves to study the history and background of the bible.  Her desire is to see men and women delivered from bondage and that the gifts that God has placed within them are manifested and operating in their lives.  She is often called the “Quiet Storm” because of her boldness to speak the truth in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  Her sincerest desire is to please the Lord and always walk upright before Him.  She knows that she can do nothing without him and gives Him all the Glory for the things He has done!
