I had known Dr. Bennett since 1960 and looked on him as the first non-Pentecostal to receive national attention upon receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an Episcopal priest in Van Nuys. He ministered with me in seminar at ORU (Oral Roberts University), and later spoke in chapel. I also enjoyed the book, The Holy Spirit and You. It’s blessed ORU’s Seminary as a textbook all these years.

Dennis Bennett was one of the key figures in the early charismatic renewal movement when he announced in 1960 to his St. Mark’s Episcopal Church congregation in Van Nuys, CA, that he had experienced a new outpouring of God’s Spirit. A few years after moving to Seattle to pastor a church, his wife, Elberta, died. He married Rita Reed and they went on to found the Christian Renewal Association. Dennis passed away in 1991, and Rita continued to minister on radio, television and colleges.
