“Improper instructions will result in ineffective ministry”
M.E.A. Global will challenge the compliance of excellence to advance the Kingdom of God.
At the heart of every believer should be the commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ to make disciples. Apostles, Bishops, Prophets, Pastors, and Ministries have the responsibility to instruct, train and deploy the saints of God in the fulfillment of this commandment. No one should occupy the office of Pastor or work in Ministry without understanding the call to reach out beyond the brick, mortar walls, and the foundation of their inner circle of church friends. Yet, Pastors and Ministries also need under girding to reproduce without reinventing the process.
Ministry Empowerment Association Global was birth out of Pastor Levonzia Stevens’ desire to see Leaders of God properly prepared with correct guidance to build Ministries of excellence. Pastor Stevens’ focus is for all Ministries (regardless of size or number) great or small to develop and operate in effective church organization and church administration. Our goal is to assist any Pastor, Church or Ministry with the information, skills, methods, techniques and procedures that will be unique to their specific community needs. Through careful planning and sharing of resources every purpose of any church can be successful!
As Apostles, Bishops, Prophets, Pastors, and Ministries we represent God. If we operate in a manner that does not bring Glory to the Body of Christ we fail as ministers of the gospel. This is where M.E.A. Global comes in with the experience to assist in the compliance of IRS and legal guidelines. M.E.A. Global wants to be that helping hand as a Father to instruct, Mother to nurture, Friend to talk with, Counselor to give wisdom and Resource Center to provide a library of information. The staff or M.E.A. Global is lined up with the vision of this ministry and will assist in every possible way to see that you are well supported in your calling of God.
