Join Dawn and Steve in the Morning for a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about being counted faithful.
And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry. 1 Timothy 1:12
In addition, Hazen Stevens tells us about the book he co-authored with Josh Clemons called Know Own Change: Journeying Toward God's Heart for Reconciliation. Hazen will also share about OneRace Movement, a gospel-centered reconciliation movement that exists to displace historic racism through prayer, relationship, equipping, mercy and justice.
Hazen is one of the original leaders and vice chairman of OneRace Movement, an organization focused on gospel-centered racial reconciliation and biblical justice. Since the movement's inception in 2016, OneRace has been addressing the racial divide in the church and society through four key pillars: mobilizing catalytic prayer, building authentic relationships, equipping disciples, and partnering for justice. He has a passion for prayer and missions and for thirteen years has served on staff with a 24/7 house of prayer and as domestic director of a pioneer missions organization. He currently serves as the Executive Pastor of GateCity Church. He is married to his best friend Hannah and they have four delightful children.
