 History of the Bensel Cross

Mitch Bensel creates driftwood crosses from selected wood from the Falls of the Ohio State Park in Indiana   

These crosses are like none others, not only because of the unique exterior, but for the faith of those buying and the prayers asked. 

God is asked to bless each cross for what the home needs in the mighty name of Jesus.

 Read miracle testimonies about these crosses on the miracle page. 

https://mitchbensel.com/cross-testimonies

Each cross either has a B burned into the back, a tag with Mitch Bensel on it or roman numerals and a B burned into it. Making them an authentic Bensel Cross. They are not numbered any longer.

Lightning Crosses, Pieces of a white pine tree that was struck by lightning, the biggest hit by lightning per four different tree crews had ever witnessed, will be made into small pocket crosses and clergy size crosses.

 

Ebony crosses! Black Ebony wood was found at the Falls of The Ohio! it is rich with its strength and beauty. 

Black Ebony is the strongest wood in the world and the most expensive!  Here is a link that explains the amazing wood!  https://treeplantation.com/black-ebony.html

If you like the black ebony message me to create a specific size  for you. I have a small bit of the wood left, I will not be making  any after the driftwood piece I found  is gone. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the very FIRST cross he made. He was told by a friend she had a dream he was to make crosses. He had never worked with wood before, yet slowly began to make what his friend said God wanted. He used broken down wood from a bunk bed. This was made over 12 years ago. Cross Number 1. He has made, given away and sold hundreds.
