Stephen Bennett: A Preacher, Teacher, and Evangelist who will impact your church with such truth, power, and love
Stephen Bennett, a 52-year-old national speaker, author, preacher, teacher, and Christian recording artist, has been impacting Bible-believing, preaching congregations and audiences nationwide for more than 16 years with his moving story of deliverance by Jesus Christ from a controversial issue that is changing the face of this nation and world: homosexuality.
By God’s grace, millions worldwide have heard, seen, or read Stephen Bennett’s Holy Spirit filled testimony. He is one of the nation’s key Christian leaders who is not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, uncompromising in his calling, and bold in proclaiming true freedom and deliverance from homosexuality. This change comes only from the healing touch of Jesus Christ in one’s life (2 Cor. 5:17).
Stephen is a man who once identified and lived as a homosexual man until he was 28 years old, and was sexually involved with more than 100 male partners, many whom are dead today from HIV/AIDS. As a drug addict, cocaine dealer, alcoholic, and bulimic, Stephen was considered a ‘reprobate’ by many Christians. Finally, Stephen was in love with and in a long-term, committed same-sex relationship with another man, who he thought would be his partner for life. Yet his journey and process of change began one day in 1990 when a Christian woman — Stephen’s friend Kathy— who refused to give up on him — showed up at his door with a Bible in her hand and shared with him the life-changing, soul-saving gospel of Jesus Christ.
