Episode 21 - Jeanne Stevens


Jeanne Stevens is a fellow Midwest girl! Hooray! I was honored to finally meet her and have her on For Real. Jeanne lives with her family in Chicago, where she co-pastors Soul City Church. You know that I only chat with folks who will be real with us, and let me just say that Jeanne perfectly fits that bill. Her new book, What’s Here Now? How to Stop Rehashing the Past and Rehearsing the Future—And Start Receiving the Present, is like a litmus test for how to really flourish in the right here, right now. I loved the book and loved learning from Jeanne in this conversation.

Jeanne Stevens is one of the lead pastors of Soul City Church in Chicago’s dynamic West Loop neighborhood, which she and her husband, Jarrett, started in 2010. Soul City is one of the fastest-growing urban churches in the United States. Jeanne has had the opportunity to lead and speak into the lives of thousands of people across the U.S. and around the world.

She is a sought-after speaker, leader, and writer. Her passion to develop people to live boldly & fully gives her a unique voice of hope and challenge.

Jeanne is the author of multiple devotionals including the newly released Less is More as well as Everyday Brave, Grit & Grace, and You Are Enough. Her newest book What’s Here Now? is available now.

She wrote Soul School for Youth Workers and is a contributor to the Bible Study and Video Series Twelve Women of the Bible as well as Real Women, Real Faith. In addition to pastoring Soul City Church, Jeanne finds great joy in being a wife to Jarrett, and a mom to her son, Elijah, and daughter, Gigi.

Team Stevens also has two emotionally needy doggies, Moses and Louie, who would feel deprived if they were not mentioned.
