Monthly Letters

Dear Friend, The summer will officially be over in just a few days and we are beginning to make final preparations for several new church plants. We encourage you to pray for these new churches as they begin reaching their communities for Christ. The John/Romans have been distributed and everything is about ready for meetings in Short Pump, Virginia. This...

Dear Friends, Time has once again flown by and it is time to bring you up to date on all that has been happening to the Steven family as they serve the Lord. In many ways, it has been a frustrating time health-wise. With hospitalizations and medical procedures to deal with kidney stones, we have been...

Dear Friend, We want to thank all of you that have been praying for us and our entire family. I must admit that the first six months of 2005 have been some of the most difficult of our ministry and our lives. We have learned many things through these experiences that I am sure will help us help others. I...

Dear Friend, Beth and I want to thank each of you for praying for us as a family over the first six months of this year. We will admit that this has been the roughest six months of our entire ministry and we still need your prayers everyday. I thought I would update you a bit on our family in...

Dear Friend, I waited a few days to write this letter in order to include the details of the meetings we concluded today in North Hollywood, California.

Last September, we distributed nearly 20,000 John/Romans before holding meetings to informally start Victory Baptist Church. During...

Dear Friend, We praise the Lord for the great month we just had with BCPM. There was one new church planted and two Faith Promise Mission Conferences held in churches that have been planted. We also held a Church Planting School in Southington, Connecticut, during the month. Tri-State Baptist Church got off to a wonderful start in Thompson, Connecticut. There...

Dear Friend, It was very good to spend some time with each of our children this past month. We met Rachel and Joel in West Virginia for their spring break from West Coast Baptist College. We took them to South Carolina to visit with Beth’s parents, as well as visiting with my parents for a few days. We also spent...

Dear Friend, During the month of February, I did something that I had not done for over fifteen months. I stayed home for three straight weeks. We were supposed to go to Kenosha, WI, to be with our daughter for the last two weeks of the month so that we could be with her for the delivery of our newest...

Dear Friend, Our entire family is so appreciative of your prayer support during these past six weeks since the loss of our grandson. We know the Lord has reasons for these things that we do not know but nevertheless this comfort does not make it much easier at a time like this. Thank you for praying for us and please...

Dear Friend, Several weeks ago, I preached a Thanksgiving message at Pensacola on thankfulness. One verse I used was, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (I Thessalonians 5:18) It has never been more difficult to obey than now. I am sure that most of you know the sorrow we are...
