Pastors Caszie and Debra Bennett have served as the Senior Associate Pastors to Pastors Richard and Marilyn Hogue for more than sixteen years and have lead the Sunday morning Praise and Worship for seven years at Citychurch of Oklahoma City. In the S,pring of 2004 when our families first met each other, we knew a great life-long friendship was being born.
Pastor Caszie has recently traveled over 8,000 miles within the borders of the state along with Senior Pastor Richard Hogue as part of a Christian spiritual awakening they called Operation Oklahoma. The gospel that was revealed to the Apostle Paul by Jesus Christ Himself is the heart of their message with a new fresh contemporary application of healing miracles, signs and wonders.
Pastors Caszie and Richard Hogue recently returned from the first of three annual 14-day mission trips to West Africa. Working along side Oral Roberts University Doctorial alumni they helped conduct a school of church planting ministry to fifty (50) local West African pastors during the day and open-air miracle crusades in the rural communities in the evenings.
The Bennetts have served in several facets of effective church ministry together for more than 37 years, including helping to birth campus ministries at Oklahoma University and Oklahoma State University while attending there respectively. The Bennetts have been certified as marriage counselors through the State of Oklahoma's Marriage Initiative and have a passion for helping couples win at marriage. As prophetic conference speakers and local ministry leaders, the Bennett's have been happily married for 31 years, now with seven (7) adult children and eleven (11) grandchildren.
The latest and most ambitous ministry is 'The Church on the Hill' in Guthrie Oklahoma. This is undoubtedly a brand new church plant which is on the leading edge of what has the makings of an epic center of a mighty expression of the Kingdom Of God which will impact the Globe.
We are in the process of reaching out and responding to as many people as we can. Every day we are speaking with new people regarding all the ministry activities planned for everyone from infants to senior citizens. We sincerely hope that you will refer to Church on the Hill as Home.
