Meet the Author

Steven Furtick

Pastor Steven grew up in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, where at age 16 he realized God's plan for him to start a life-changing church in a metropolitan city.

This vision became a tangible reality when Elevation was founded on the faith of eight families who risked everything. Selling their houses and quitting their jobs, they moved to Charlotte believing that God would turn this city upside down for His glory through the local church.

After nearly five years, Elevation Church has grown to more than 8,000 in attendance each week at four locations. Since our launch, we've seen more than 10,900 people receive Christ. In 2007, 2008 and 2009, Elevation Church was named one of the "10 fastest growing churches in America" by Outreach Magazine.

The heart of Pastor Steven's message is audacious faith and how to approach every experience from a visionary perspective. As a young voice in the Church with wisdom beyond his years, his passion for seeing God's purposes fulfilled is igniting a fire here in our city and beyond.

Pastor Steven attended North Greenville University, received a B.A. in communications and went on to complete a Master of Divinity from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

He resides in the Charlotte area with his wife, Holly, and two sons, Elijah and Graham.

Great read!
5 stars By Gary, May 13 2013
Furtick has a God given ability to relate to the people. 

In this book, he is able to properly explain how and why we ought to be bolder in our prayers. Furtick also gives some guidance on how we can pray in the will of God. Very helpful!

Having read the book, it has given me the boldness to pray audacious Sun Stand Still prayers as we ought to as believers in an unsurpassed God who loves us, and to do so for his glory and not our own.

A great read. A must read. :)

Challenged me
5 stars By Mark, Apr 20 2013
After reading this book, it challenged me to trust in God more. To have that faith in God that Joshua had, and as the book said, to make the sun stand still. This book I definitely recommend to people who are feeling weak in faith, just like me. It will challenge you to have faith in God and dream big dreams!

Awesome
5 stars By Tina Summers, Nov 24 2011
Sun Stand Still was just the right book for me at the right time. It has encouraged me to exercise my faith in who God is; to actively believe that God can (and wants to) change the world, and He wants to use all His children to do it.
