Stephen R. Strader
Stephen R. Strader is the International Missionary Evangelist and Senior Pastor of Ignited Church, Lakeland, Florida. The name of his ministry is Ablaze International. He travels extensively throughout the United States and internationally, igniting, fanning, and reviving revival fires. In January 1994, Stephen, along with his wife, Janice, and their four children, Jordan, Marcus, Austin and Alexis, took a leave of absence from the church to travel with missionary evangelist, Rodney Howard-Browne, as Rodney's assistant. Stephen assisted Brother Rodney in over 300 meetings. It was during this time that God began to burn the revival fire in him. Stephen has his undergraduate degree in Bible and Pastoral Theology. He feels called to "Five Fold Ministry" as a Pastor. God has placed on him a "Apostolic/Prophetic Mantle" that often flows in his services.
