In Las Vegas around 1992 I was asked to come and sing for Norvel Hayes who I had traveled with some. This was a pretty big conference and many notable speakers and singers would be there. To make a very long story short. The conference was going well and Friday Morning I had sung during my scheduled spot and had finished my ministry. When Norvel asked me to come up and sing before Benny Hinn preached. I remember thinking I know of this man and his ministry. The doors opened up and some 5000 people stood up and welcomed him in.
Pastor Benny then came and set beside me. Norvel leaned over and asked Pastor Benny if I could sing before he preached. Pastor Benny said that would be nice. I remember when I got up to sing that an extra unction came over me. I was singing "How Great Thou Art" I remember It was if I did not sing but something sang through me. After the song was over pastor Benny got up to preach and made a comment young man you know the old songs but yet you have long hair. That was all that was said. He got up and preached a tremendous message and when he started to minister he called me up to sing while he ministered. Pastor was ministering to people the all of the sudden he begins to tell the story of how God spoke to him on the plane. He said the Lord told him he was going to meet a man and that man was going to be a great blessing to the body of Christ and he was to help him. He said I was so excited that when we got to Vegas he called his secretary Nancy and related the story to her. He then turned around to me and said, "that man is you Brent. I remember being stunned; he then began to read my mail about my life and my parents. He continued ministering and then turned around again and said, " I hope you are not busy this Sunday because I am going to fly you up to Orlando, and you are going to be my guest this Sunday. Needless to say my life was changed.
We got to Orlando and had a great meeting Sunday morning. Guess who the speaker was our modern day "Phillip" Rhinehart Bonke. We went to his mom’s house for authentic Lebanese food. That night I sang 6 songs and in the middle of the healing pastor Benny turned around and told me he was taking me to Europe with him. He made me stand and sing while people laid money at my feet to pay for my trip. This was also the first time I had ever been touched and knocked off my feet under the power of God. I then went with pastor Benny and the team for 3 weeks all over the world sang for him and the crusades. My life was touched profoundly and thus my ministry was launched that day.
I learned a great lesson that day when God is ready to use you He know where you are and how to get His will accomplished. Please enjoy one of the songs that I sang for Pastor that Sunday Evening.
