Rev. David Stephens
David Stephens comes from a heritage of pastoring; his father and grandfather both founded and pastored churches in the Lansing area. Feeling the call of God on his life, he continued that tradition after finishing a degree in social work from MSU. At a young age in 1971, He became the pastor of a small Lansing church his grandfather founded in 1938. David Stephens was ordained as a minister in the United Pentecostal Church in 1973. In his tenure as pastor, he has also served in a number of district roles, including Sectional Youth Director, Sunday School Treasurer and later Sunday School Director for the Michigan District of the UPCI. He has also served as the District Presbyter for the greater Lansing area. He continues to sponsor training programs for ministers in the Michigan district and is currently a member of Points of Refuge, a counseling program sponsored by the UPCI for licensed ministers and their families. He is committed to area community programs, and supports Christian Services, a help agency for those in need in the Lansing area. Pastor Stephens took a greater role in the leadership of Liberty Church in Grand Ledge, Michigan, as his father, founding Pastor Douglas Stephens, developed health problems. Douglas and Gloria Stephens started the Grand Ledge church and continued to pastor this congregation as it outgrew 3 buildings over the years. Douglas Stephens went on to his reward in 2011, and David Stephens has continued to pastor and lead the church in Grand Ledge following his father’s wishes and the calling he feels from God for Liberty Church.
