girls to trust God, dream big, and they can (and will) overcome any and every circumstance they may face.

In addition to these foundational ministries, Overseer Stephens successfully published her first book Loving the Skin You’re In, which focuses on the issues plaguing men and women that result in low self-esteem and a damaged sense of self worth. In it, she deals with the physical, spiritual, emotional, and financial components of oneself, how to find peace from past pain to advance to prosperity, and how to find your purpose in God.

She pastors with her husband and partner Apostle Shawn Stephens at IGNITE Kingdom Church International in Leesburg, VA. Overseer Stephens has been instrumental in the ministry's

growth with her unique declaration of the Word, her humble disposition, and continues to be an awesome influence in the Kingdom of God and a threat to the army of the adversary.


"Accepting responsibility for your actions is the beginning of maturity. It can be difficult to accept at times, however if you're going to develop properly you must be accountable to someone and accept responsibility for your actions, or dysfunction is inevitable."
