David and Mary Alice Stevens have a particular burden for evangelism and leadership development in the French speaking world. Starting January 2015 David will serve as pastor of the International Bible Church of Jurbise, Belgium. As a couple, they will be leading and shepherding this French/English speaking congregation with a vision to reach the multinational community in the area with the gospel. David will also be periodically involved in pastoral training in French speaking Africa where an estimated 95% of pastors have no formal biblical training.
The Stevens previously served as missionaries in France (1985-2000) and David as Sr. Pastor of Central Bible Church in Portland, Oregon (2000-2014). David is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and holds a Th.D. from the Faculté Evangélique de Vaux-sur-Seine near Paris, France. David and Mary Alice have three adult children and three grandchildren. Your support will specifically assist David in coming alongside African pastors with the training so urgently needed.
