Benjamin Paris was born one of 9 children to Reverend Scott Paris. Bishop was the youngest of The Reverend’s sons. Bishop grew up in a Christian home. Bishop Ben’s family has produced thousands of Pastors. Being people of the most – high God is rooted in his bloodline. Benjamin is a family man. He is supported by his wife, Angela Paris, and their 5 children. 3 sons and 2 daughters.
At the age of 5 Bishop Ben was baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit. By age 7 Benjamin was preaching from his father’s pulpit. At the age of 9, Benjamin fell sick with a bone disease. His bones began to deteriorate from his left knee all the way to his ribs. God is a miracle working God. One day Benjamin was sitting in his fathers’ church and the pastor was preaching. Suddenly the church began to get quiet. It was as if God was silencing the room. Everyone was looking at the pastor wondering why he had stopped preaching. A traveling evangelist from Oakland California, by the name of Arlene, Abruptly stood to her feet. Form 30 feet away she pointed her finger at the Young Bishop Ben and proclaimed his healing. She exclaimed ” In the name of Jesus you are healed!” she then ran to Benjamin and laid her hands on him. At the age of 14, Benjamin was healed of a disease doctors said he wouldn’t recover from. At the age of 15, Benjamin found himself backsliding and involved in drugs, alcohol, and gangs. He made all the wrong choices and slipped further and further into darkness. 15 years go by, Benjamin finds himself being called on by God. Yes even from his Jail cell God was calling Benjamin to his will. God delivered Benjamin from prison and set him free. 6 Months later Benjamin is back in jail and on his way to an 8-year sentence. Benjamin got cleaned up and began to seek God. He began to fast and pray. Upon his intake to prison, Benjamin found out he had cancer, diabetes, asthma, and allergies. He called on God. The same God that had healed him in the past, found favor in Benjamin and healed him of his afflictions. Then God started the transformation that would carry Benjamin from the prison yard to the pulpit. From the pulpit, Bishop Benjamin Paris went on to be a Globally recognized Minister, public speaker, and a Kingdom Builder on the international level. Bishop Benjamin Paris is the founder and president of Soldiers Of The Cross. Soldiers Of The Cross is a Bread of Life Ministry rooted in helping the kingdom grow during this end time season.
