Dr. Mike Stevens


Dr. Mike Stevens has been an ORDAINED BAPTIST PREACHER since 1972.  He is, I believe, one of the bright stars in God’s galaxy of preachers.  His hallmark is his passion in the pulpit.  He preaches with great power and conviction.  Mike is a gifted musician and Christian businessman.  His talents include SINGING, playing GUITAR and PIANO, and much more.  Dr. Stevens has recorded five projects in NASHVILLE, TN, including producing the #1 SONG “I Wonder if He Ever Cries” written and sung by his sister, Bonita.

Mike is an effective writer, speaker and former D. J.    He is author of  the best selling book “How to Survive the Storms of Life”.  Along with his many other accomplishments Mike has been voted one of the top ten DJ’s in America 4 times in medium markets.  Putting on his business hat, Mike has served as Vice President of Bobby Stevens Hauling Contractors, the family business,  for over 40 years.

Dr. Mike served for many years as a successful pastor in Columbus, Georgia, and now is making himself available to all the churches through his preaching, evangelistic meetings, in Bible Conferences, his music and as a banquet speaker.  This man has a dynamic testimony, a wonderful style of delivery and a pure heart sold out for God.  Dr. Mike Stevens has a Bible message to share and he will be a blessing to your church.

Mike is married to the lovely Marianne Hinton from Reynolds, Georgia.  They have two children Bobby John, 34 and Shawn (now in Heaven).  This couple, this family, lived a beautiful life with many advantages and rarely a dark cloud in their sky.  When Mike wrote his best selling book, “How to Survive the Storms of Life,” he and Marianne had been through two of the most life-changing, heart rending storms in their young lives.  First cancer attacked their 15-month old grandaughter and for months their precious little one clung to life on not much more than a bed of prayer, tender-loving care and a devoted team of medical professionals.  Then comes the emotional explosion that shocked and shattered this family to the core–the death of their son, Shawn.  Dr. Stevens, with his wife by his side, penned these two events and wove them into a hard-hitting narative that grips the reader by the heart and never lets go until the story is shared.  Mike’s bone-crushing honesty and devoted love for his family and God reveal, I am certain, why the Lord uses this man in so many ways for His glory.   Mike will often sign his letters and emails with these words, “In His Grip.”  I truly believe this man is, indeed, in God’s grip.  By all means, get this book!

Years ago this editor was the pastor of the congregation where Mike and his family served.  They were widely known as the Singing Stevens’ Family.   When they were in town, the family was in our church.  Perhaps I was the first to sense that God had a call on Mike for ministry.   Unknown to me, Mike was uneasy with my presumption that the Lord would most likely call him to preach if only he would listen for that call.  But God has a way of getting one’s attention and Mike did hear Him.

I invited Mike to preach his first sermon in our Grace Baptist Church, Lumpkin, Georgia, on Sunday morning, January 16, 1972.   Thirty-eight years later, Mike is still preaching.  He can say, as the Apostle Paul did, “…I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth…” (Romans 1:16)

We present here one of  his sermons preached recently in Columbus, entitled, Seven Things You Should Take to Church

Author: Editor

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.

  1. Dr. Mike it is time for our semi-annual memmorial service at VitaCare in Phenix City again. You did such a wonderful job in caring for our bereaved families during our Nov. Memorial, we would like to invite you to please consider coming to our Memorial on April 29th and speaking to these families. It will be at the same location, Concord Baptist Church on 280 north of Phenix City (10 Miles) at 7 p.m. Dinner will be provided. We would love to have you bring your wife and hear encouragement from her as well. Thank you again for being transparent and allowing us to see Jesus in you.

  2. Dr. Mike, I am embarrassed with your lavish praise and must rush to say any good that I was able to perform at The Sword was due primarily to two important facts: 1. The sterling reputation of Dr. John R. Rice, the founder and long-time editor who placed unusual trust in me. 2. The mighty power and blessing of God who smiled on much of my work. I must also credit the wonderful men and women who served there with spiritual distinction and devotion to Dr. Rice and to the Lord. Those were blessed years where the team saw many precious souls saved and lives transformed.

  3. DR RON:
    THANK YOU FOR THE PHOTO AND THE STORY ON THE FRONT PAGE OF YOUR SITE. I APPRECIATE YOUR HELP. FOR YOU THAT DO NOT KNOW, I WAS CALLED TO PREACH UNDER THE MINISTRY OF DR. RON ENGLISH AT GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH IN LUMPKIN, GA. IN 1972. HE WAS THE FIRST PASTOR THAT I EVER KNEW UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. I FOUND THAT HE WAS THE REAL DEAL . VERY ANOINTED AND A BIG HELP TO ME IN THE EARLY DAYS OF MINISTRY. HE LET ME PREACH MY FIRST MESSAGE AND MY FIRST REVIVAL IN HIS CHURCH(WHAT A BRAVE MAN). I HAVE BEEN PREACHING, SINGING AND SHARING CHRIST FOR THE PAST 38 YEARS AND HAD NOT HEARD FROM HIM UNTIL I FOUND THIS SITE. SOME OF THE BEST DAYS THE SWORD OF THE LORD NEWSPAPER EVER KNEW WAS WHEN DR. RON WAS THERE. I ONLY HAVE TWO GOALS IN MINISTRY. I WANT TO SEE LOST PEOPLE SAVED AND THEN TO HELP CHRISTIANS SURVIVE THE STORMS OF LIFE.DR. RON , THANK YOU FOR YOUR MANY YEARS OF SERVICE. ONCE AGAIN YOU ARE SHOWING US THAT, ‘IF YOU DO THE BEST YOU CAN, WITH WHAT YOU HAVE, WHERE YOU ARE, GOD WILL NOT LEAVE YOU WHERE YOU ARE, AND WILL INCREASE WHAT YOU HAVE. I PRAY WE BOTH FINISH THE RACE OF LIFE WELL AND STRONG.
    IN HIS GRIP:
    DR. MIKE STEVENS
