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 three adorable G-babies: Asher, Sophia, and Lizzy.
