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's international offices in Cleveland, Tennessee. Rev. Stevenson believes in and adhere's to, The Declaration of Faith and Doctrinal Commitments of the Church of God.
Bishop Stevenson has been in the ministry for the last 40 years. In his first year, he put into action the Ministry of Reconciliation which is a ministry given to all believers that have been reconciled to God, " And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry" 2 Corinthians 5:18.
The first year was also a year of studying God's Word, witnessing to family, friends, and whoever I came into contact with.He then spent the next15 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 2,562 hours in intercessory prayer fulfilling God's prayer mandate.
After fulfilling the one-year (366 days) 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.
After many days of fasting, thousand of hours of intercessory prayer, and after three trips to Jerusalem in 2008, it was birthed in Rev. Stevenson's heart that an intercessor was needed in Jerusalem for a special purpose or at least for someone to stand in the gap for a special need.
In 2009, after completing a 10 day-70 hour intercessory prayer mandate on the Mount of Olives Rev. Stevenson returned to his apartment in Rechavia, Jerusalem.
This prayer mandate ended on the last day of the Hanukkah on 12/19/2009. On the same day at sunset on 12/19/2009, he would start a prayer mandate to establish a portal for ministering angels in minister to the House of David and to bring about the peace of Jerusalem.
In 2013 he would also establish portals in the nation of France for the House of David in order to draw God's ancient people to make Aliyah from France.
The actual series of prayer mandates that began at sunset on 12/19/2009 which was at the closing of Hanukkah was completed on the last day of Hanukkah on 12/30/2019 in Paris, France. 12,000 hours of intercession completed and to God be all the glory.
Bishop Greg has made 42 trips to Israel and many trips to France to establish portals for the House of David both in Jerusalem as well as throughout France.
Rev. Stevenson says that of all the aspects of ministry he has been involved in over the last 40 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." Psalm 122:6
