Rev. Dr. Troy Benitone - Directing Pastor
Troy and Beth, along with their family, returned to Southern Illinois in April 2010, after serving the Lord as a pastor and church planter in several cities over the previous 20 years. He has led numerous mission trips and crusades to plant churches in Honduras and Africa. Troy shares, "My heart's desire is to be involved in leading the church in the area of new church development and in expanding the reach of the Church through growing new faith communities through new church starts. "My life credo is to dream dreams and plan plans so grand that if God is not in them, they are doomed to fail." Troy and his wife, Beth, have four beautiful children: Heather (husband Tad Rogers), Joshua (wife Sarah), Caleb and Megan. They also have a granddaughter Addison Rogers. Troy is the third Pastor in the over 30 year history of Community of Faith.
