In a moment clearly defined by God, Beth Stephens accepted the call into ministry when she was just twenty years old. While at a women's retreat with her church, she heard the audible voice of God and the Lord confirmed His plans for her the next day through another minister. Within a matter of weeks, she was invited to preach her first sermon.
Beth has been sharing the gospel with others now for more than twenty years. No matter where she is preaching, from a pulpit in rural America to a platform in Belgium to an underground church group in China, Beth's message always weaves the same thread of truth...the saving power of Jesus Christ is real and available for all who ask. Beth has a unique way of reaching out to others with warmth and grace, while encouraging an authentic, faith-filled Christian life empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Beth grew up in a home where God was the center, and prayer was as natural as breathing. Some of her earliest memories of being made aware of God were of her mom holding her as a small child and praying. This environment cultivated a strong sensitivity towards the ways of God. Beth has been involved in ministry for as long as she can remember; singing, teaching, praying with others, and later the call to preach.
Beth Stephens-Johnson stepped out in faith in 1996 and started the evangelistic ministry, Beth Stephens Ministries, Inc. Since that time, she has served as an associate pastor in Athens, Georgia for 11 years, 10 years as a full-time evangelist. She currently continues to evangelize and co-pastor alongside her husband, Curt Johnson.
The desire to serve the body of Christ and be used by God has resonated with Beth since she was a young girl. The opportunities the Lord has opened for her has exceeded her every expectation and she believes without a doubt the best is yet to come.
