Lovel Bent - Leader of UK Apostolic Team

Lovel was born in Jamaica where he spent his formative years. In the early 1980's he immigrated to England where he experienced the challenges of adapting to a new culture and lifestyle, as well as coming face to face with the ugly realities of racism. Despite this he overcame these challenges, found work and began to build his life. It was in the midst of these difficulties and unhappiness that Lovel met Christ, which completely changed his life.
Once converted, Lovel attended Bible College in Ireland and very quickly became actively involved in local church work. In 1970 he began pastoring a small church in West Norwood and in 1985 founded New Life Assembly in East Dulwich. The New Life Assembly ministry has now grown to 8 branches including a branch in Jamaica and a recently acquired church in Holland.

Lovel is a member of the ICLC Apostolic Company and is also the leader of the UK Apostolic Team, which helps give leadership to the 35 Connections churches in the UK, as well as being senior pastor of the New Life Assembly group of churches.

He has travelled extensively throughout America, Africa, South America, Asia, the Caribbean and Europe, preaching the gospel and seeing many people converted, healed of sickness and receive miracles from God. He is a man of great faith, a man of prayer and fasting and has an anointing on his life to do great exploits for God.

Lovel has a big heart for people and will go to extremes to give assistance. He is also a father figure, spiritual mentor and advisor to a wide number of leaders and pastors.

He is married to Bernice and has two children, Faith and Wayne, as well as one grandchild - also called Lovel.
