About Reverend Greg Stevenson
Reverend Greg Stevenson is an Ordained Bishop with the River Church of God in West Palm Beach, Florida. The River Church of God is affiliated with the Church of God international offices in Cleveland, Tennessee. Rev. Stevenson believes in and adhere's too, The Declaration of Faith and Doctrinal Commitments of the Church of God.
Bishop Stevenson has been in the ministry for the last 38 years. He spent his first 15 years from 1981 - 1995 in the prison ministry as well as preaching and teaching at the West Palm Beach Church of God. Then for the entire year of 1996, he spent thousands of hours in intercessory prayer fulfilling God's prayer mandate.
After fulfilling the one-year prayer mandate, Rev. Stevenson was appointed in 1997 as the Director of World Missions by Bishop Jack Sollogub, Senior Pastor, at the River Church of God, formally the West Palm Beach Church of God, where he served for the next 11 years.
In 1983 Rev. Stevenson heard the still small voice of the Holy Spirit gently calling him to a new purpose, yet there was no clear direction of where that purpose would lead him.
The following day he spoke to his pastor Rev. Ruben Adkins about the experience and was told to just wait upon the Lord.
It was the next day while sharing his testimony with an older lady about how good God had been to him, always meeting his needs, that out of the clear blue sky she said, "I want you to go to Israel, I will pay for it, let me know when you are ready to go.
Well, now he knew where the Lord was sending him and how it was going to be paid for, but that was still a far step from having a planned itinerary.
Nevertheless, after fasting and praying, the Lord revealed to Rev. Stevenson that he was to go on tour with a small group led by Evangelist Louis Kaplan who was the founder of Jewish Voice Broadcasts based in Phoenix, Arizona.
For Rev. Stevenson, this first tour to Israel was the beginning of a love affair with Jerusalem and with God's chosen people.
It was in 2008, after many days of fasting and prayer and three trips to Jerusalem, that The Jerusalem Project was birthed in Rev. Stevenson's heart. He has prayed for the peace of Jerusalem since 1983 as well as made 40 trips to Jerusalem and 10 trips to France to complete prayer mandates.
Rev. Stevenson says that of all the aspects of ministry he has been involved in over the last 39 years that there is nothing as dear to his heart as the ministry of the intercessor. His desire in these last days and these perilous times that we live in, with Jerusalem being prepared to become a cup of trembling to all nations, is that men and women of prayer would rise to the occasion, make up the hedge, and stand in the gap for the peace of Jerusalem. "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee."
