Recorded live on January 21, 2021, The Upper Room hosted this online gathering to honor recently retired publisher Rev. Stephen Bryant. This time of worship, celebration, and gratitude includes staff, friends, and publishing partners from around the world. Hosted by Rev. Junius Dotson, Discipleship Ministries CEO, and Rev. Beth Richardson, dean of The Upper Room Chapel, this event includes special guests, South African pastor Rev. Trevor Hudson and The Upper Room’s newly named publisher Rev. Kimberly Orr. Join us in saying farewell and thank you to Stephen for his rich, effective career-long ministry of prayer and spiritual formation—a ministry that has stretched around the world.
You’re invited to partner with The Upper Room by making a gift to the Stephen Bryant Prayer and Spiritual Formation fund, which supports virtual and in-person events for pastors and spiritual leaders and will lead to the development of a digital library for sustaining the lifelong journey of discipleship and spiritual formation.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
