Pastor Bennett was the pastor of LifeSpring for 39 years. When he retired, the LifeSpring Board of Directors bestowed on him the title of Pastor Emeritus.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you." ~ Jeremiah 29:11-12
