OUR Staff

Lead Pastor

Reverend John Stevens was born and raised in South Florida. He and his wife, Rebekah, grew up attending a private, Christian school and church together in Hollywood, Florida. This is where God began His work in John's heart. John was saved and baptized at First Baptist Church of West Hollywood. He and Rebekah like to say that they were "preschool sweethearts!" After high school, John and Rebekah attended Liberty University and earned their undergraduate degrees together. They began working in youth ministry while in college, and they married in 2004. John became a youth pastor and later a discipleship pastor; he was ordained at The Bridge Church in Miramar, Florida, and he went on to earn his master's degree in Christian Ministry also from Liberty University. God called John to Sebastian, Florida in 2017 when Pastor Ron Barber retired from CBC. John and Rebekah love raising their three boys here. Their boys are Johnny, Harley, and Joey!

raul 3_edited_edited.jpg

Raul has been attending CBC since March 2011. However, long before he accepted the Lord, Jesus Christ, he knew that God was calling on him to serve Him. Raul didn't know where exactly God wanted him to go. It was sometime in 2011 that Raul came to CBC, and Pastor Ron prayed to God to direct Raul to the place where He wanted me to serve Him. Well, Raul never left CBC. As time went by, Raul understood that he didn't have to look anywhere else. You see, Raul knows that he was exactly where GOD wanted him to be. His wife Josie, his son Jay, his daughter-in-law Grace, and his grandson Lino also attend CBC.
