Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realize that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Amanda Benefield, Assistant Pastor
Amanda has been in ministry most of her life. She started preaching at the age of 14, became a Youth Pastor at 15 and then District Youth Pastor of North Alabama Congregational Holiness Church at age 16. When graduating from high school, she wanted to go into computer programming, but the Lord dealt with her and she heeded to His call. Going on mission trips to Nicaragua and Honduras, she knew then the ministry was just what she was created for! She married Tony in 2001 and now they have two beautiful daughters and three grandchildren. She was an evangelist traveling the United States until she felt the leading of the Lord into a call to serve those closer to home. Licensed with the Church of God in 2011, she has served as Youth Pastor and Music Pastor in the churches she felt the Lord leading her. She felt a strong call to Coosa Valley and when she obeyed the call, the Lord revealed His plan. Amanda and her family are so thankful to be in the Lord’s will at Coosa Valley Church of God.

Michael and his wife, Elizabeth, share a passion for reaching students with the gospel. Michael, coming from a lineage of preachers, accepted the call of God upon his life at a young age and has worked with youth in various capacities ever since. Elizabeth, graduating from Lee University with a degree in Discipleship Ministry, is expecting to see God heal and save whole family units through youth involvement in church! Michael and Elizabeth, who have been married for two years, are ready to work as a team – desiring to witness young people get saved, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Spirit, empowered to make a difference in their schools and friendships.
