Pastor Chas was born again at age 5, in Houston, Texas, graduated from Texas A&M University with an Engineering degree, and worked five years as a business systems consultant. After fully dedicating himself to the Lord, and receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit in 1995, Chas sensed the call to full time ministry. He received most of his Bible training from Kenneth E. Hagin and most of his ministry training from Angelo Mitropoulos. He served as an assistant at a church for two years, beginning in 1997, then travelled as an Evangelist for about four years, preaching in local churches and also with Angelo in R.W. Schambach’s last five years of tent revivals.
Chas has written five life-changing books and co-authored a Minister's Handbook for effective ministry training. His ministry to the Church at large is marked with a refreshing demonstration of God’s Word and power that quiets the emotions, stirs the spirit, and brings people back to their high calling of God in Christ. With New Testament devotion to precise, scriptural logic, Chas is a foundation builder of God’s Word in people, holding nothing back in igniting people’s faith toward God while keeping them committed to the integrity of God’s Word.
Chas is currently a trustee on the board of ICFM, International Convention of Faith Ministries, a worldwide ministers fellowship organization with over 700 gospel preachers.
Through Stevenson Ministries, Chas and Joni air their television broadcast, The Faith Walk, around the world on The Word Network and also the Victory Broadcast Network, as well as via the internet.
Pastor Joni was born again at age 10, in Port Neches, Texas, and graduated from Lamar University with an Accounting degree, working many years as a CPA before full time ministry. Joni was baptized in the Spirit in 1994, and began serving the Lord faithfully at her home church and also in outside ministries, including overseas on several mission trips. She received most of her Bible training under Kenneth Hagin and most of her ministry training and development with Rev. Lora Alison.
Joni has been reviving and awakening people to God as a true prophet to the Body of Christ. There is a notable a grace and power upon her that clearly elevates congregations into the glory of God and ignites their faith and passion for Christ. With grounded and refreshing New Testament doctrine, she brings a right on "now" message, with demonstration of the Spirit, miracles, and healings. And after her meetings, it is clear that "God has just come close to people."
Joni's first solo book is just out, Eliminate the Fear Factor, and it's already radically crushing the fears that have plagued people for years. She also co-authored Stevenson Ministries' Minister's Handbook with Pastor Chas.
