His PhD research focused on the growth of the Lutheran Church of Madagascar (F.L.M.). Dr. Bennett's research led to the publishing of his first book on titled, I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare. Dr. Bennett is the Executive Director of Luther Academy and also serves Concordia Theological Seminary as an International Missions Specialist and visiting professor of missiology.

Topic: Seances, Ouija boards, interactions with “ghosts,” practicing Voodoo, and summoning demons: These real-life experiences have led people to horrifying hallucinations and even schizophrenia, and have comprised “spirituality” for many Americans. How can we break free from the despair and crushing fear that such encounters can bring? How do we come to the aid of our neighbors who are lost in Satan’s deceptions? Pastor Bennett will discuss the only way out: God's grace and the medicines He gives to His people.
