Maranatha Radio is the daily radio broadcast dedicated to taking the “whole Gospel to the whole world.”  It features the humorous and down-to-earth teaching of the late Pastor Ray Bentley.  His strong desire was to broadcast to all peoples including the many millions of unreached and hard-to-reach people groups with the love, peace and hope of Jesus Christ, through radio, satellite and short wave.


Ray Bentley graduated from Calvary Chapel Bible College, Twin Peaks, California.  Pastor Ray served Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa at the House of Psalms before beginning his pastoral work. In the fall of 1977, Ray founded Calvary Chapel of El Cajon and served there as the senior pastor for four years. In 1981, he left Calvary Chapel of El Cajon to assume the position of assistant pastor / teacher at Horizon Christian Fellowship in San Diego, California.


In August of 1984, Pastor Ray began Maranatha Chapel, now a 15-acre church facility in Rancho Bernardo, California serving more than 6,000 people weekly.

The Lord called Pastor Ray home in January 2022.  But through Maranatha Radio, Pastor Ray’s teaching continues to be heard on stations around the world, and believers have been touched by his wide variety of books and other resources.




In recent years, Pastor Ray preached at a Billy Graham-sponsored crusade in India, as well as other outreaches to Africa, Bolivia, Australia and Ireland.

Ray leaves behind his wife, Vicki, and two grown children and six grandchildren.  Ray’s son, Daniel Bentley, is now Senior Pastor of Maranatha Chapel and continues the tradition of solid Bible teaching.
