Stacey Bearden

Stacey was raised in East Tennessee and married his wife Janine two years after high school while still in college. He is a graduate of Liberty University with a B.S. in Business Administration, and also has a Master of Arts in Christian Leadership Studies from Liberty Theological Seminary.

Stacey and Janine have three adult children, Michelle, Melanie, and Zachary. Michelle and her husband Ashley live in Lakeland, Florida. Melanie and her husband Freddy live in Knoxville and have one daughter named Avery. Zachary and his wife Kelsey also live in Knoxville and have a daughter named Delaney.

Stacey was called into full-time ministry in 2000, and since that time he has served at three churches. He has also been involved in three new church plants in Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Florida. Stacey and Janine are both very excited about the possibility of serving at Providence to help accomplish the mission and vision that God has given this church of making, growing, and unleashing disciples of Christ.
