Reverend DeWitt Stevens, Jr. Bio
 
Reverend DeWitt Stevens, Jr., Senior Pastor of Macedonia Church, received his divine call from God through a heavenly vision. In this time God revealed His plan for restoration, renewal, revival and end-time power for the last day church. Since that time, Pastor Stevens has not been able to quench his thirst for the fulfillment of this plan and promise. After many years of seeking The Almighty God through fasting, intense prayer and searching the Word of God, he is assured that the time is now for the supernatural.  Habakkuk 2:3 expresses, 
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: thou it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”
 
The call of God followed a life of drugs, sexual promiscuity, a homosexual and bisexual lifestyle and worldliness that is associated with the music industry.  It was after a recording contract with Warner Brothers Records that Pastor Stevens asked himself: What would it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?  It was on the club bar stool that he felt the compelling of the Holy Ghost to return to his godly roots instilled by his parents, the late Rev. DeWitt Stevens, Sr. and Eva Stevens.  It was then that he made up in his mind to forsake the worldly gain and walked away from a promising career in the industry, while being one of the lead singers of the Aristocrats R & B group.
 
The road to full recovery from the life of sin was not easy.  In 1974, he gave his heart to the Lord and joined the Trinity Temple Church located in New Haven, CT.  There, he was mentored and nurtured in holiness by his spiritual father, Bishop Charles H. Brewer, Jr., under the auspices of the Churches of God in Christ (C.O.G.I.C). Holiness and sanctification became a lifestyle.  He was called into the ministry in 1977 and was ordained as an Elder in 1979.

As he spiritually matured and became sensitive to the voice of God, he was commissioned to leave New Haven and return to Norwalk, CT.   Together, he and his father worked in ministry. He served as the Assistant Pastor of Macedonia Church to his late father, who was Senior Pastor.  Later, he became the Senior Pastor and was guided by the Holy Ghost in leading a young congregation into a life of separation and consecration.  The motto for the day was and still is, “Dare to be Different!”

Pastor Stevens has dedicated his life to sharing the gospel and compelling men and women to enter into total deliverance from ALL bondages of sin and equipping them for effective ministry.  He has traveled the continent of Africa and several Latin nations for the cause of Christ.  

He is ready to travel the world with the word of deliverance.  He carries the burden of the Lord that the hearts of men might be changed, especially within our inner cities and black communities. His passion is to be the vessel used of God to return the hearts of the fathers back to their children and to carry the torch that will provide the civil rights deserved in our communities.  The blood of our black men continue to cry out in the streets. And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground (Gen. 4:10).  Pastor Stevens is willing to stand between the porch and altar and cry for the deliverance of our people – not only for them but all people!

 

Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? (Joel 2:17)

The vision of deliverance continues to burn in his heart for our nation, the Body of Christ and those held captive to all forms of addictions and sexual perversions (the stronghold of our day).  He will not stop seeking God until His power is in full demonstration. “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord” (Luke 4:18-19).  

He has attributed his steadfastness to the keeping power of the Holy Ghost and the support of his wife, Addie Stevens and his three children, Raquel Giddiens, DeWitt Stevens, III and Tiffany Nash.

Pastor Dewitt Stevens, Jr., has forsaken all to know the God of the bible!  And now in this 21st Century it is time for a nationwide, worldwide revival!

“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.  And let him that heareth say, Come.  And let him that is athirst come.  And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Rev. 22:17).
