Dr. Lee Benton is still performing as an Actress, but has also been called to evangelize to the world for His Kingdom. She calls herself an “Evangelist”, but actually became an “Ordained Pastor” in 2014 and received her “Doctorate of Theology” in 2017. She says, “I use to call myself an ‘Under Cover Agent for God in Hollywood’, but now the whole world knows my calling for HIS MAJESTY…and I’m so honored to be used by Him”.
Born & raised in Tampa, Florida by what Lee calls, “Two of the greatest, Christian parents in the world!” She was raised a “preacher’s kid” by her Evangelist father Lester Benton, & her mother Earlene Benton, a Sunday School teacher. Lee received Jesus as her Savior at the age of six & started singing gospel songs on stage at age 12, performing in churches & various locations with her sister, Carolyn, & known as “The Benton Sisters”.
After 10 years of a successful modeling career, Lee landed her first two acting jobs in Tampa, Florida…& that’s where a producer/director discovered her & connected her with an agent in Hollywood, CA. That agent brought her to Los Angeles, CA in 1982, where God gave her favor & she started working on TV & Films right away. In 1983, Lee landed a Series Regular role on the hit TV Series, “Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer” as, “Jenny”. Her career blossomed & went straight up from there. (Google: “Actress Lee Benton” for Acting Bio & Resume).

And in 2012, this ladies group eventually turned into her, ”Praise & Worship” meeting at CBS STUDIOS teaching the Gospel to both men & women for six yrs. Lee says, “God is really moving at these monthly meetings in Hollywood…men, women & young people in are coming to know Jesus as Savior, Praise be to God”! (She now holds her meetings at another location in Hollywood. Please go to her website for more details: www.LeeBenton.org).
