Testimonial from Pastor Stephen:
"Jesus chased me down on a street in New York City while I was pursuing a sexual addiction. Jesus delivered me and asked me to follow Him only. For over forty-seven years my passion has been to follow my Redeemer only and help others learn how to follow Him."
Pastor Stephen now loves being 75 years old and loves helping seniors grow in their personal walks in following Jesus!
