Steventhen is a recording artist, worship leader, author, inspirational, motivational, and national pro-life speaker, and founder of Broken Not Dead Ministries.
His life is the result of the gang-rape of an eighteen-year-old mentally challenged young women. Incredibly, despite his mother’s lack of intellectual ability, homelessness, and a society that was constantly pressuring her to abort him, he survived. However, his mother couldn’t care for him and placed him in foster care, where he was later adopted. He wouldn’t be reunited with his birth mother for more than twenty-seven years.
Despite the brokenness he has experienced, he travels the country, sharing his message of HOPE and RESTORATION for the BROKEN built on the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
