Each year they travel thousands of miles, crossing many denominational lines. The Stevens Family has a special message and an apparent sense of direction in their ministry. Their music could best be described as Christ-centered and family-oriented. The purpose of their ministry is to offer encouragement and hope through the message of God’s Word in song.
Being raised a pastor’s son, Rich was greatly involved in music ministry at his home church from a very young age. Rich is a talented singer, keyboardist and bass player. He is also a gifted arranger and producer. Rich has owned and operated Rich Sound Recording Studio since 1989. In addition to producing recordings for his family, he has also worked with a variety of recording artists, as well as writing and producing jingles for radio and television.

Tami began formal studies in classical piano and voice at the age of six, and continued her training through college. She is a graduate of Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri. Tami was the soloist for two years with Revivaltime, an international radio broadcast heard on over 600 stations weekly. She is an accomplished vocalist, pianist & flutist. Tami is also a very gifted speaker, and accepts invitations as her schedule permits, to share at ladies events and retreats.
Rich and Tami’s daughter, Erin, is a vital part of this ministry team. There's nothing quite like family harmony, and Erin's strong voice blends with her parents to create that signature trio sound that has become a hallmark of their concerts. And when Erin steps forward on a solo, her confidence, passion for ministry and her love for Christ is apparent in every note! Erin truly completes The Stevens Family and is a favorite with listeners of all ages! In addition to her busy touring schedule, Erin is also a very talented photographer.
