Bishop Dudley Bent is a native of Jamaica and came to Canada in his early twenties. He came to Canada with the hopes of running from the ministry to which God had called him to in a vision when residing in Kingston, Jamaica. However, while fellowshipping within Canada, God spoke to him again in a dream and this time Dudley Bent answered the call and in 1976 he was ordained by the Pentecostal Church of God. He stepped out in faith to start his own work, Deliverance Temple Pentecostal Church of God, now known as Faith Worship Centre (FWC). He is a passionate educator and preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He has a heart and compassion for people and understands that God has a plan and purpose for every individual. The essence of his ministry focuses on faith, worship, sound biblical teachings, God’s impact and significance in each person’s life. Since 1991, he was elected as District Bishop for the South Central Ontario District and continues to be re­elected into office. Furthermore, since 2006, he was elected as the National Bishop of the Pentecostal Church of God of Canada.

Bishop Dudley Bent affirms what Hosea spoke in Hosea 4:6, “my people perish due to lack of knowledge,” as a result he founded and is currently the President of the Canadian Bible College and Seminary in affiliation with the School of Bible Theology, Seminary and University of California in 1991.

It is his mission to help teach, instruct, and produce men and women who have a sound knowledge of the biblical principles of the Word of God. He has earned his Bachelors, Master’s and Doctorate while holding three Doctorates in Divinity and is a certified counselor and psychotherapist. His desire is to reach, connect and identify with people in all aspects of their lives and to let them realize that God is there for them. With his wife, Joyce Bent, of 45 years they pastor Faith Worship Centre and oversee the District and National offices of the Pentecostal Church of God of Canada. They have four children and three grandchildren who live in Ontario.
