Stevens served as director of missions in the Olympic Baptist Association from 1975 until 1997, where he made an impact for the Lord by encouraging new pastors to apply for positions in local churches and mentoring others. After retirement he continued to work as an intentional interim pastor, while also consluting and assisting churches to restore growth.
