NJITS Seminars Info

NJITS Seminars is about equipping believers for ministry. Online training and curriculum resources help. Sometimes, however, the personal touch of bringing in a professional Christian educator to speak to your group takes you a step further.
Mark Stevens, the founder and director of NJITS Seminars, is available to come to your location -- church, conference, Bible Institute.

As a Christian speaker, he is first and foremost a Bible teacher who enjoys communicating God's Word in creative ways that not only expound the truth but also drive home the application of the truth to life. As a Christian speaker, he is also a training instructor for people who want to learn "how-to" serve and "how-to" share God’s Word.

Schedule Mark or Stephanie as the seminar speaker for a special training event or as a guest speaker for a regularly scheduled meeting including a Sunday School class, men’s or women’s group, or other Bible study group.

• Chaplain Mark H. Stevens, M.Min • Evangelist Stephanie R. Stevens

Mark Stevens is an ordained Minister in the Church of God in Christ. He has a BA in Theology and an MA in Ministry from Freedom Bible College and Seminary. He also graduated from Philadelphia Biblical Universities Institute of Jewish Studies; he also is an ETA certified teacher with 4 units of Clinical Pastoral Education. He is the Dean of the Charles Harrison Mason Bible Institutes of NJ. Elder Stevens is a staff Chaplain at Ancora Psychiatric Hospital in Southern New Jersey. Mark has over 25 years of ministerial experience. He has been a prison minister, street preacher, retreat speaker, and revivalist. His wife Stephanie is an overseas Missionary that has traveled to Panama, The Philippines, Haiti, and South America. Together they have over 40 years of ministry experience to share with your church or group.
Mark’s heart's passion is to see the church operate according to God's plan. He sees Ephesians 4:16 as the blueprint for the spiritual growth of the Body --the body "builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." To this end he actively seeks to equip God's people for service. Emphasis is placed on helping people find their best fit in ministry through the identification of their spiritual gifts combined with their personality, experience, and heart passions.

The Frequently Asked Questions

What do you charge?
You could take into consideration the length of the seminar and cost of materials she may bring which would vary depending on how many people attended. While remuneration for actual teaching is negotiable (between you and God, that is), we must ask, however, that you take care of actual expenses for travel and lodging if required.

What is the minimum group size for which you are willing to come?
We will come for as few as five people or for fifty or more. Everyone needs equipping. Whether you are a small church or a big one, the need for equipping is the same.

How far are you willing to travel?
NJITS is willing to go where God leads. We reside in Southern NJ. As long as expenses can be paid when travel and lodging is involved, we would be privileged to come to wherever you are if it fits her schedule.

When can you come?
Saturdays work well to do anywhere from a couple hours to an all day session. We may be able to come during your normally scheduled meeting times including mid-week or the Sunday School hour. If you are within a reasonable driving distance (up to two hours from Browns Mills, NJ), regularly scheduled meeting times work well for a series.

How can I schedule a seminar?
You can e-mail Mark at chaplainstevens@gmail.com with any further questions you have or to discuss possible dates. Or, you can call at (609) 436-8343, Anytime ask for Mark

Are you problem focused? Or solution focused? The Holy Spirit also gave me a strong revelation on this. Those who keep focused on the problem rather than the solution will begin to see the problem as larger than the solution. Are we paying more attention to the problem than we are the solution? Is your problem bigger than God's solution? Jesus came to bring solution, and by us accepting the solution, it makes use of His labor and blood which brings Him much glory, but by paying more attention to the problem, we ignore the solution that Jesus provided and make a mockery of what He went through for us. Being problem focused creates an atmosphere where depression, unforgiveness, irritability, and hopelessness can breed. You cannot experience inner healing as long as you are focused on the problem. If you want to receive healing, you must stop focusing on the problem, and begin meditating on the solution. There's a couple powerful teachings that I recommend for further information on this subject: "What's on your mind?" and "The Power of Your Thoughts"
Stop listening to the devil! The devil and his evil spirits work diligently to aggravate the wound to keep it from healing. This work is done by keeping the person reminded of how badly they were wronged or what was done to them. The devil seeks to remind you about why you are angry or hateful towards that person who has wronged you. Demons will do this same thing when trying to develop bondages of fear in a person; they seek to remind the person about why they are fearful. This is why it is vital to stop listening to the voice of the devil, because his goal is to aggravate the wound and make it fester into an even deeper infection.
It can be tempting to desire hatred over healing! When a person has been wounded, they will often choose to retain the feelings of hate and resentment, than to be healed of their wound and see God make everything alright. Do you really want to be healed? Or would you rather hold on to feelings of hate and resentment inside your heart against that person(s) who has wronged you? Would you rather see them suffer and punished for their wrong, or would you rather be healed yourself and let off the hook for your mistakes that you've made in life? Remember, Jesus made it clear that if we want to be forgiven and let off to hook for our failures in life, then we need to let others off the hook and give them what we want God to give us - that is, His mercy and forgiveness!
Stop blaming the person who wronged you, because it wasn't what they did to us or what they are doing to us that is keeping us in bondage, it is our own reactions to what was done to us which holds us in spiritual prison. It is our own anger, hate, resentment, and unforgiveness which will keep us behind spiritual bars! We need to take responsibility for your own failures. One of the reasons that we have a hard time forgiving is because we would have nobody else to blame for our problems. It is important for us to take responsibility concerning our own failures, and give up those things which do not honor the Lord in our hearts. We aren't responsible for what was done to us, but we are responsible for how we chose or choose to react to what happens. Until we can realize our own failures (how we've been reacting to what was done to us) and take responsibility for what we've allowed into our minds and lives, then it can be a blockage to our emotional healing. Blaming others will hinder the healing power of the Holy Spirit in our lives, therefore it must be dealt with before healing can freely flow into our mind and emotions.
Remember, it is not what was done to us that keeps us in bondage, it is our reaction to what was done to us which causes all the spiritual bondage and torment! When a woman is raped, it isn't the rape which causes her spiritual bondage, but rather the way she reacted to it; the hate and resentment that is felt afterwards is what gives Satan a foothold. What if the person who has wronged us is still doing it today and has no repentance in their heart? What they are doing to us cannot keep us in bondage, however, how we choose to react to what they are doing can hold us in bondage and torment spiritually.
Perhaps Satan's best-kept secret to prevent a person's soul from healing, is to cause them to feel like God is somehow disappointed in them, or even angry with them. If the enemy can cause a person to feel like God is not eager to forgive or be merciful to them, this is a sure roadblock to anybody's healing process. This causes a person to distance themself from the very person (Jesus) that desires to heal them. You cannot distance yourself from God and receive healing to your emotions at the same time. Drawing neigh to Him is a huge key to receiving healing. One day the Holy Spirit spoke to me (twice actually!) and said, "A sound mind comes from knowing me." God's word tells us that He is the one who gives us a sound clear mind of love and power (see 2 Timothy 1:7). Jesus tells all those who are heavy laden (people who are carrying emotional and mental baggage) to come unto Him, and He will give them rest (see Matthew 11:28-29). One of the biggest keys to inner healing, is to come unto Jesus, but Satan's way of preventing that, is to make the person feel like God is angry with them. This has a lot to do with our perception of our relationship with God. If we don't perceive ourselves as being made right with God, it will cause all sorts of spiritual problems and seriously prevent the inner healing process. I have a powerful teaching just on this very subject which I recommend anybody seeking an inner healing to read. It's called, "Will God Forgive Me?" and it is full of revelation from the Holy Spirit on this. I am not covering this in detail here, so be sure to read this other teaching as well!
Another one of the biggest keys to inner healing is tearing down walls that prohibit the healing power and light of the Holy Spirit to reach the wound to bring healing. The Holy Spirit is very eager and ready to heal our wounded emotions, but He's also a gentleman and won't override our freewill. He honors our freewill so much, that He would even let us choose to reject Jesus and end up in hell - He won't even force us to go to heaven! Our freewill can choose to take down our emotional walls or to hold them in place. What are these walls that I am referring to? They are our own reactions to what was done to us. When we react in anger, bitterness, resentment, and choose to give place to the devil in our hearts, we are putting up walls around our wounds that will prohibit the light of Christ from healing them. That is why it is vital that we take responsibility for our reactions to what was done to us. We are not writing off or discrediting what was done to us, but simply not allowing walls to go up which will prevent the Holy Spirit from healing our wounds.
The Holy Spirit also gave me a strong word on our transparency with Him when seeking inner healing and freedom from fears. Transparency is very important when seeking healing for emotional wounds. What heals our wounds? The healing light of Christ! What does light require to pass through? Transparency! The Holy Spirit spoke to me about this, saying, "If you want my healing light to heal your damaged emotions, then you must be transparent with me... for light requires transparency to pass through." Now those weren't the exact words, but that was the message that He gave me.
