Steve and Marion Penny have been involved in Christian ministry for over forty-five years.
Since planting their first church in 1981 they have gone on to plant many churches and establish networks of churches across Australia and beyond.
Steve has a prophetic calling and has for many years travelled extensively declaring God’s word across the nations.
Steve and Marion raised three children – but went through the sadness of losing their eldest son to cancer at 27 years of age.
Their other two children are both serving God and have given them seven grandchildren.
In recent years Steve and Marion have both been through bouts of cancer – but have seen God deliver them into a new season of health and ministry.
God spoke to Steve while in the hospital about raising up a generation of people who desire to develop their prophetic edge.

In 2019 Steve received a word from God – God’s Gathering has begun

As Steve says, “I must now gather willing people together and equip them to live prophetically in these important days. The internet has given me the tools to connect and equip people across the globe.”

As a part of that gathering, Steve is so excited to be able to impart his knowledge to those that have a like Spirit.  Please consider coming with Steve on his journey of 1000 Shields. You would be joining hands with one of God’s seasoned leaders who will continue to take the uncompromising word of God to His people worldwide.  Together we are one – we are strong.

It was during the 2020 lockdown that God prompted Steve to shout it from the housetops – and so The Gathering Unlimited Online church was launched in July.  Steve preaches authentic Christianity based on four convictions from Romans 14:17 – Righteousness, Peace, Joy, and Power.  JULY 2021 – The name of the Church has been changed to EPIC Church to show honour to a church close by who are also using the same name – this was causing confusion in our city.
