About Steven Stockwell
My original plan in life was to become a successful electrical engineer.
However, after earning a bachelor’s degree in physics from Texas Lutheran
University in 2008, my life took a drastic turn. My perspective completely
changed after I had the opportunity to participate in a mission project with my
father, David Stockwell, in Zambia, Africa. I saw multitudes of young people
who had succumbed to the pressure of substance abuse and sexual immorality. I
saw the hopelessness and loneliness felt by people around the world. I saw the
need for these people to hear the message of Jesus!
I have committed my life to speaking out against sexual immorality and
substance abuse through sharing my personal testimony and showing others how
they can overcome these temptations by following Jesus Christ. I have had the
privilege of sharing this message with tens of thousands around the world and
we have open doors to share with hundreds of thousands more in the next few
years. My life isn’t what I expected it to be; it is infinitely better!
