West Orlando Church

The Pastor

About Pastor Byron Stevenson…

He is the pastor of the West Orlando Christian Center Church of God in Christ (WOCC) formerly Bay Street Church of God in Christ, “A Place of Refuge, and A Place of Praise” and is anointed and appointed by God for this time and season.  He was born 1st child of three to Mr. Freddie Stevenson, Jr. & Martha Stevenson.  He is the founder of Divine Purpose Ministries, which serves to amplify and enhance the ministries of WOCC. Being a visionary concerned about the plight of the people not only in the assembly in which he serves, has caused him to birth several ministries such as: The King’s Academy Day Care and Pre-School, the H.A.M.M.E.R. (Higher Academics Meeting My Educational Requirements) Tutorial Program, Couples Ministry, Singled Out Singles Ministries, M.E.G.A. (Mentoring and Empowering a Generation of Achievers) Youth Tract, WOCC Bible Institute and many more ministries that aid in connecting West Orlando Church to countless persons in the Winter Garden and Greater Orlando, FL areas.

Now into his (13) thirteen year as pastor, WOCC under Pastor Stevenson’s leadership has experienced a significant increase in overall membership, and great depths of spiritual blessing and individual empowerment.  Pastor Stevenson takes on the belief that while tradition is important, it is imperative to recognize God’s move and His will for His people at this time.  Knowing that he is blessed to pastor a church that was founded upon spiritual principles; with a solid foundation that is still doing ministry after (78) seventy eight years.

Having grown up in the church and saved and filled with the Holy Ghost at the age of (13) thirteen Pastor Stevenson would soon follow in the steps of his now deceased grandfather and uncle Bishops T. H. Thompson and M.L. Sconiers into that of the gospel ministry and now also is a servant of the church.  Notwithstanding his creative and anointed musical abilities as an organist, Pastor Stevenson was the Executive Producer of one of Billboards Top 10 Gospel CD’s: “Twinkie Clark-Terrell presents the Florida A & M University Gospel Choir”.  He is a graduate of the School of Business and Industry at the Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University with a concentration in Management.

Life’s Objective and Goal…

The primary purpose of his ministry is to change lives. Reserving the ideological approach that God placed us upon the earth to make a difference in the lives of people of all origins.  Transforming a generation of people to not only know God, but do exploits for him as well that is spoken of in Daniel 11:32.
