As the oldest of seven children, Ahkeem grew up in a family with a strong heritage and history in New Brunswick, New Jersey. His father served as a missionary across Africa, Europe and the Caribbean building churches before he passed away when Ahkeem was eleven. With a mother who served her family as a homemaker Ahkeem and his six siblings had a challenging upbringing. However, the children grew up to be very successful personally, professionally and spiritually.
Transitioning into the workforce after his educational pursuits was the next phase of Ahkeem’s life journey. Ahkeem spent fifteen years working in corporate America as a marketing coordinator and direct mail manager before he transitioned to become a VP of sales and marketing. He is currently a marketing consultant to the some of the world’s largest organizations to validate, automate and optimize marketing efforts.
Ahkeem was the first in his family to get a college education with degrees in International Business and Marketing. After his college career, Ahkeem went on to receive his Master’s of Business Administration with a concentration Marketing.
Ahkeem is actively involved in his church community serving as an elder at Plantation SDA Church and the music ministry leader.
Ahkeem travels locally and internationally ministering and singing for the glory of God, and for the edification of those who need an encouraging message from the Lord.
Michael Stephenson was born in Jamaica and lived in the British Virgin Islands before settling in the USA. He has served in various ministries in Plantation SDA church ever since he returned to the path that Jesus was calling him to 20 years ago.
Although he now serves as Plantation’s Mission Council chair he believes in ministry where essentially anyone can be a servant and there are opportunities at all levels of the organization for the Spirits giftedness to operate.
He is a strong advocate for Bible exploration with a sensitivity to contemporary applications – experiencing and living the word so that it can be believed in our culture and sphere of influence. This being a core foundation of our mandate and purpose in Christ.
Michael is married to Janice and they are blessed with 2 sons: Michael Jr. and Matthew. He is a Technology Consultant who spends too much time working but takes it as an opportunity to represent Christ to the unchurched in very real, practical ways. When he's not working, he enjoys amateur photography. A surprising fact about Michael is that he was the smallest kid in the entire high school until Grade 9.
