ABOUT THE PASTOR – STENNETH E. POWELL
Worshipper, entrepreneur, Pastor and Pulpiteer extraordinaire, Stenneth E. Powell’s preaching ministry has spanned the breath and width of the United States of America for more than thirty years. Powell is a gifted orator who captivates audiences by articulating the truth of God in a way that is singularly unique. Through God’s eyes Pastor Powell has been viewed in many capacities. Having an unquestionable apostolic mandate on his life he planted churches both in Connecticut, his native home and in Raleigh, North Carolina, his place of assignment. Having done no real research or geographical survey or analysis of the area, Powell heeded the voice of the Lord to leave Connecticut and move to Raleigh, North Carolina where he did not have any friends or family. Like Abraham, Brother Powell followed his spiritual impulse and uprooted his growing family to relocate to Raleigh at the Lord’s command.
