Rev. Stephen and Rebecca McKay were both reared as pastors’ children from birth, so it was only natural for them to answer the call of God on their lives and to commit to a lifetime of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Soon after their marriage in 1989, they moved from the Christ Gospel Intl. Headquarters church in Jeffersonville, Indiana, to assist pastors in Ft. Myers, Florida and in Mansfield, Ohio. In 1997 they received the call to pastor; first in Hurst, Texas, then in Kenner, Louisiana. In 2000, Rev. Hicks, the founder and director of Christ Gospel Churches International, asked them to return to Jeffersonville to become an associate pastor assisting in leading worship services, sharing the Word of God, implementing outreach programs and overseeing associate ministers and their individual cell groups. In 2006 they moved from Jeffersonville to Dallas, Texas and for eight years served as assistant pastor to Rev. Don McKay and the Christ Gospel Church of Dallas, again working in every capacity such as leading worship services, sharing the Word of God and ministering to the youth.
In November of 2013 God again called on them to serve, this time as pastors of the Christ Gospel Church of Lafayette, Louisiana. Their heartfelt desire is to witness the life changing impact of God’s love to this community.
Rev. Stephen and Rebecca McKay have one daughter, Morgan McKay, and two grandsons, Haeden and Easton.
