Our Apostle


Senior Pastor, The Bethel Church

 Carlos L. Malone, Sr. is a devoted husband to his lovely wife Pamela; a loving father to his children — twin daughters Ashley and Andrea, son Carlos, Jr., and his beloved godson Raymond Young. Malone is an apostle, prophet, pastor, entrepreneur, motivational speaker and author. His style of teaching is refreshing, authentic and genuine. His bold approach to deliverance and spiritual wholeness through transparency is a Biblical blueprint for those seeking a better way of life in God for their families, professions, communities, wealth and health. The five-fold ministry anointing upon his life has and continues to be used to equip and impact ministries throughout the United States and abroad. He began preaching and teaching as a youth on April 21, 1977 in East St. Louis, Illinois, which began his journey of transitioning, building and edifying the body of Christ with indisputable kingdom principles, which he still employs to this day.

Apostle Malone is the Founder/CEO of Rhema Apostolic International Network (R.A.I.N.), an apostolic training network for those who desire to walk in spiritual authority and wholeness through training, transformation and triumphing through God’s kingdom agenda. He believes there is a hunger in the land for something meatier and less sweet, more substantive and less shallow, more spiritual and less spirited, more transparent and less pretentious. There is a rumbling in the heavens; it’s time for God’s people to be set free from religion layered spirituality.
