Jimmy and Abby Stevenson

Jimmy Stevenson grew up in Pennsylvania on a farm with his parents and three sisters. He graduated from Faith Baptist Bible College. Jimmy Stevenson felt God call him into the ministry, as he served alongside missionary builders, while on a mission’s trip. He joined ChurchCare Construction in March of 2019 after completing a year-long internship with ChurchCare Construction. Abby Jones Stevenson grew up in Kanas with her family and served in many various ministries at church and summer camp. She also taught at a school for a while. She attended Faith Baptist Bible College as well. Jimmy and Abby met at college and were acquaintances for many years before showing interest in each other. They started dating in 2019 and were married in May of 2020. Like many missionary builders, the Stevenson’s live full-time in a 5th wheel RV. They recently had added a new baby boy, Paul, into their family in July 2021. The Stevenson’s serve as missionary builders with Brent and Michele Howard and currently travel to different churches to raise more partners in ministry. The construction ministry allows the Stevenson’s to use their talents to help churches with their building needs as well as get involved in the “life” of the church, which is serving people.

For more information about the Stevenson’s, visit their Facebook page: Stevenson with ChurchCare Construction or feel free to contact them at jstevenson@churchcare.org. Please pray for the Stevenson’s to raise more partners in ministry, for safety on the construction site, and for raising Paul to love the Lord. 

Brent and Michele Howard

Brent and Michele Howard are missionaries with ChurchCare Construction a subsidiary of Baptist Church Planters. Both Brent and Michele grew up in Christian homes. They accepted Christ as their Savior at young ages and faithfully served him throughout their teenage years and into adulthood. Brent and Michele were married in 1995 and had two children, Ryanne and Riley, who traveled with them for 11 years and were homeschooled. They are now​ both graduated and living at home in Grafton. They were both serving in their local church when they began to feel God’s call to the building ministry. After helping with a couple small projects at church and camps in the area, they joined Baptist Missionary Builders in January 2007. Baptist Missionary Builders later merged with Baptist Church Planters and started ChurchCare Construction in January 2011. Brent and Michele live in a fifth wheel trailer full time. They travel to Baptist Churches in the United States and help manage their building projects. The Howards sending church is First Baptist Church of Lagrange, Ohio, where they attended for the first 30+ years of their lives. Brent has managed over 20 projects and helped many churches and missionaries with smaller projects.
