Pastors Pat and Kathi Dezort
Pat Dezort
Pat Dezort has been senior pastor at Centerpoint Church in Benton, AR since 1997. He sensed a call to ministry after attending Oklahoma State University and when he was working in the oil industry for Conoco. This has been a real factor in his messages, where he delivers the Word in a way that is easy to understand and that is relevant to everyday life. Prior to ministry, he attended Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, OK, was also a youth minister, and an associate minister at Church of the Harvest in Oklahoma City, OK. His time in the oil-fields of New Mexico, and years in the ministry have produced a true people's pastor. Pastor Pat and Kathi have four children: Zach, Jessica, Alyssa, and Timmy.

Kathi Dezort
Kathi Dezort has been singing since the age of four years old. She sensed God calling her to full-time ministry while attending Oral Roberts University, where she graduated with a major in Communications, and a minor in Music. Kathi also attended Rhema Bible Training Center with her husband Pat. Kathi's love of Praise and Worship is evident through her energetic and passionate leadership style. In addition to Ministering in Music, Kathi is also devoted to ministering to women. In 2004 she launched Lifepoint for Women, which is designed to help women grow spiritually, and live a victorious Christian life.
