Stephen Armstrong was the founder and principal teacher for Verse By Verse Ministry International. He came to know the Lord in his early 30s, while serving as an Air Force officer. After becoming a Christian, Stephen experienced God's call to learn and teach the Bible, so in 1997 Stephen left the military, found a job in Colorado, and began studying the Bible.
As he devoted himself to study, Stephen developed a love for in-depth, verse-by-verse teaching of God's word, recognizing it to be the means God has appointed to persuade the unbeliever of the truth of the Gospel and equip the saints for the work of ministry (Rom 10:17; Eph 4:14-15).
In 2001, Stephen received God's call to move to San Antonio, Texas, where he began to teach the Bible verse-by-verse in churches throughout the area. In 2003 he participated in a small church plant and was called to pastor Living Word Fellowship. That year he also founded Verse By Verse Ministry of San Antonio in the desire to offer his unique style of in-depth Bible teaching to a worldwide audience via the internet.
Today, VBVMI's worldwide reach and our growing catalog of insightful Bible teaching is proof that Lord calls unqualified men but won't leave them untrained.
Stephen passed away in January 2021 leaving behind a library of insightful Bible teaching and a ministry team committed to advancing the Gospel worldwide.
