"It's a NEW Season at Zion"
Exodus 12:2

Dr. Kevin E. Stafford, husband of the lovely Margina E. Stafford, father of Imani, Tylah, TaKenya, Marlon, Torrey and Kevin II, and son of Catherine Stafford and the late Dr. E.E. Stafford, is our proud and loving Pastor.  

Dr. Stafford is perhaps one the greatest thinkers of our time. He is a published author, as well as a Gospel recording artist. He is an academician and has committed his life to the highest standards of scholasticism, having matriculated through the halls of City College of San Francisco,  acquiring an Associates of Arts Degree in Education; Chapman University in Orange, CA, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology; the Interdenominational Theological Center (Morehouse School of Religion) in Atlanta, GA, securing his Master in Divinity Degree; the Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, MA, achieving a Doctor of Ministry education. Finally, he was awarded a Doctor of Divinity Degree from the New Freedom Bible College in Belleville, IL, just outside of Chicago.

Most importantly, because of the unquestionable anointing upon his life and call to the Gospel Ministry, he is the walking epitome of the Apostle Paul's claim that "I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me." Dr. Stafford is a seasoned preacher, having pastored a congregation of nearly 1000 in Mount Clemens, MI, just outside of Detroit, and now in Compton where he has been instrumental in bringing in upwards of better than 1000 members who have been saved, or joined under his leadership over a cumulative total of 14 years of pastoral ministry at ZBET.

He has preached literally all over this country and NEVER stands to proclaim without digging to the depths of every text and ascending to the heights of the Holy Ghost power. Everytime he stands to preach, his motto is, "Go hard or Go home", evident by the testimony of anyone who has heard him preach. To God be the glory for the ministry of Dr. Kevin E. Stafford!
