Pastor Steven and Katie Sexton- Founders

Steven and Katie Sexton have a contagious passion for God and people. From a young age, both felt a strong call to full-time ministry. When they met, many of their conversations centered around what God was calling them to do in the future. After serving on staff at Christian Ministries Church and Brookhill Ranch Summer Camp for 20 years, Steven and Katie started Be the One Ministries Incorporated where they spent their time traveling and training the next generation of young believers. They love equipping young people and church leaders across the country and in Belize. This ministry has continued to soar over the years as more people have answered the call to “Be The One”.
