Apostle Benita R. Patterson

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:13

Benita Patterson was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey. She is the devoted wife of Apostle Allen L. Patterson, and has four wonderful children and 2 grandsons. Although she is young in age, she is a mother to many including her five brothers and sisters. With her church family as a priority Pastor Patterson spends most of her free time counseling, advising, encouraging, and praying for others. She is a selfless woman who would give her last to save another. 

Apostle Patterson accepted Jesus Christ at an early age. However, she was baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit at the age of twenty-six. As an anointed woman of God, Apostle Patterson has committed her life to ministry; feeding the homeless, evangelizing, visiting the sick and imprisoned, telling men, women, boys, and girls to come see a man "who set me free."

Apostle Patterson has been in the ministry training as a pastor for over three years under the leadership of Apostle Allen L. Patterson. She received her pastoral license in October 2001, which marked her first step towards the path that God laid before her. After much hard work and dedication, Pastor Patterson was ordained in July of 2004.

Apostle Benita Patterson is the senior pastor to the women of Greater Harvest Church Worldwide Ministries, Inc. Preaching, teaching, and living the word of God are her specialty! She believes that God has given us a mandate for this season to establish the five-fold ministry. 

Pastor Benita accepted her call to the Apostleship, has been affirmed and continues to work selflessly in the work of the Kingdom.
