Pastor Miilhan Stephens was raised in the Unificationist tradition and was educated at the University of Maryland in College Park where he graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Food Science. He is currently pursuing a master’s in Religious Studies from the Unification Theological Seminary.
Miilhan discovered the heart of God at an early age. He is known for being an idealist, but always works things from a practical perspective. Cheerfully sharing his faith and listening to others throughout his life, he decided to step up his service to God by pastoring the Maryland Unificationist community he so loves. He pastored the New Hope community in Maryland for 2 years, from 2012. In December 2014, he was appointed as Vice President of Family Federation USA, and in December 2018 he was appointed Secretary General for Subregion 1. He later became the Director of TribeNet, the Heavenly Tribal Messiahship department in America, where he has been supporting the American Tribal Messiahs in their mission.
Pastor Miilhan’s commitment to service goes above and beyond the norm. He has been a staple behind the scenes of big rallies and other major events, committing his expertise and time to causes outside of his normal duties.
On January 31, 2009, Pastor Stephens received the Marriage Blessing with Sayaka of Osaka, Japan. They have two children.
