1 Corinthians 13:8

MEET THE SENIOR PASTOR


Shelly D. Stevens is the Senior Pastor of Blessed Assurance Christian Assembly (BACA).  She was duly ordained and installed as the Senior Pastor of BACA on March 21, 2021.   She has a Master’s Degree in Accounting, and is also a Certified Life Coach.   Pastor Shelly’s passion is people, and her joy is loving them to wholeness.
Pastor Shelly has served God and His people faithfully for over 20 years.

Her obstacles in life and her determination to overcome the rejection and abandonment she experienced at birth from those she loved, has equipped her with a strong desire to succeed and has taught her how to lead. At the age of 13, she was homeless, and later raised three amazing children with minimal assistance. Her resilience, with the hand of God on her life, gave her the strength to overcome many challenges and hurdles that she faced. She is an example of what God can do with a life that trusts Him.
 
Pastor Shelly has served in various capacities in the work of the ministry. In 2000, she served as the Youth Minister of New Destiny Church under the leadership of Pastor Kervin James. She was later licensed as a Minister of the Gospel of Total Man Christian Center under the leadership of Apostles Timothy and Joyce James in 2008, and served as an Elder of BACA from 2013 to 2021. Pastor Shelly has worked in all areas of ministry from the Sound Technician to the Financial Administrator. She remains an example to others of tireless service, being totally sold out to the work of the ministry.

Pastor Shelly is a walking miracle and a testimony of God’s grace, unfailing love and far-reaching faithfulness. Though at birth Shelly was abandoned by her parents, God divinely orchestrated her life so that she was placed in a family home that feared God and served Him actively in ministry and missionary work. It was during these childhood years that the seeds of desire were planted in her gentle heart to serve God and humanity.

As much as Pastor Shelly loved the Lord and loved to serve God and His people, being a pastor was never one of her aspirations. However, the more she continued to serve God and His people she exemplified the heart of a pastor. The call of God upon her life became more and more evident. After her service of more than 20 years, God laid it upon the hearts of Apostle Timothy and Joyce James, founders of Blessed Assurance Christian Assembly, to appoint their daughter, Shelly Stevens, to the Office of the Pastor. This was a push for her into her next level of purpose and destiny.

Pastor Shelly has three beautiful children, DeAndrea (Dominic), Nakesia and Tony. She also has four grandchildren, all of which are boys—Tyrell, Cason, Azariah and Ashton. She is a native Texan, born in Houston and loves her city and its people.
Pastor Shelly stands on this belief, “Only love conquers all.  It is only pure unconditional love that can reach past pain, addiction, trauma and so much more; and touch the very heart of the matter to bring change.” Pastor Shelly is a living example and the epitome of love. SHALOM!

Ephesians 4:11-16 (King James Version) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

1 Corinthians 13 LOVE IS THE GREATEST GIFT 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
