John & Lisa Bevere

Our Founders

Over 30 years ago, John and Lisa Bevere met in college. John was a tennis-playing engineering student, and Lisa was a sorority girl. On their very first date, John shared the gospel with Lisa and she gave her life to Christ. Soon after, they got married, and they’ve been happily married ever since.

John and Lisa founded Messenger International in 1990. In over two decades of ministry, their God-entrusted messages have transformed millions of lives worldwide. Recognized globally for their boldness and passion for the Lord, John and Lisa have a heart to see believers not only know the Word but also walk in the fullness of its power.

The Beveres spend much of their time speaking and writing messages that will impart freedom and empower the local church. When they aren’t traveling, they love to spend time at home with their family. They live in beautiful Colorado Springs with their four sons–Addison, Austin, Alec, and Arden–stunning daughter-in-law, Julianna, and two adorable G-babies: Asher and Sophia.

History

John and Lisa founded John Bevere Ministries in 1990 in Orlando, Florida. The ministry began with a mandate to see nations transformed by the power of God’s Word. In 2001 the ministry moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado, and since has grown internationally with offices in the United Kingdom and Australia.

John Bevere Ministries became Messenger International in 2004. This change was made with the purpose of broadening the ministry’s scope as an organization in order to effectively reach the nations. Over the past 17 years, John and Lisa have published over 20 books, many of which are best sellers with award-winning curriculum.
