The Vanderbloemen Leadership Podcast brings you interviews from leaders across the theological spectrum of the global Church. Our goal is to bring you thought-provoking interviews that encourage you, challenge you, and help you build, run, and keep great teams.
In today's episode of the Vanderbloemen Leadership Podcast, William talks with Dr. Chris Stephens, Senior Pastor of Faith Promise Church in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Dr. Chris Stephens has spent the last 26 years serving the Lord through preaching and speaking across the globe. His unconventional testimony, which includes a near-death experience through drug overdose at the age of 22, leads him to speak about the transformative redemtion that is available through a life with Christ.
Chris strives to help people find and achieve their full God-given potential. He currently serves as the Senior Pastor of Faith Promise Church, one of the top 100 fastest growing Churches in America. He has written an autobiographical book called The Climb of Your Life: Reaching the Peak of Your Potential, which encourages those suffering from destructive cycles of sin with a plan for hope.
