Here's What People Are Saying
"I've read it thru twice", "easy to understand", "thankful for the abundant scriptural references to support".
–Christian Believers of Donelson, Donelson, TN
Just finished a great book about a meeting I've attended, but not always appreciated all my life. As I've grown in my faith, my understanding and value of this meeting have increased. New Testament Priests, Speak Up! has given me a refreshed appreciation for the Lord’s Supper and for each believer's role as a priest. Priests don't sacrifice with empty hands but offer back to the Lord what they've been given. May we actively worship in spirit and in truth.
–Laura Messerly Assembly missionary to Peru
About the Author
Mike Stephenson began his spiritual journey while a student at the University of North Carolina, coming to know Christ through the campus ministry of the Navigators. His interest in missions was piqued at an Urbana missions conference. After graduating from college, Mike served with Literature Crusades for two years in South America. Through that experience, he met his wife, Kathy, and he was also introduced to the Brethren assemblies.
After completing additional education back in the USA in Bible, missions, and linguistics (with an emphasis in TESL – teaching English as a second language), Mike and Kathy and their two sons spent the next eight years in the Middle East. There he taught English while they served as tentmaker missionaries, first with Operation Mobilization and then under the auspices of CMML. More recently, Mike taught missions at Emmaus Bible College while also developing a minor in TESL for the college’s Intercultural Studies Department. Currently, Mike and Kathy are back in their home assembly of Plymouth Bible Chapel in Plymouth, Minnesota and are actively serving the Lord there.
