About Jeni Stivale

The King of Kings Community Los Angeles website revealed that Stivale and her husband Brian are the lead pastors of King of Kings Community Los Angeles. They highlighted that both are professionals in the entertainment industry. 

They felt God’s calling after years of working in and out of New York City. They noted that God called them from “broadway” to the “narrow way.” The website stated that the couple spent the next several years serving as worship and arts pastors at some mega-churches.

In addition, they highlighted that they established Stivale Ministries in 2010. The website mentioned that they began traveling the world to preach and teach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. 

Also, they emphasized that Stivales hosted several TV programs and mounted Christian shows in Russia and some parts of America. They added that the Israeli Government invited them to set up the original production, The Kingdom, a rock version of the Passion in Jerusalem. 

Moving to Israel

The same website narrated that the couple relocated to Israel with their two sons, Gabriel and Benjamin, in 2011. 

They mentioned that they stayed there for two years. They revealed that God made them realize the value and power of understanding Hebrew roots as Christ’s followers during their stay in Israel. 

Moreover, the church mentioned that the couple became Good Will Ambassadors to the State of Israel. Then, in 2013, the family returned to America to raise awareness to the American church to embrace the richness and legacy of Hebraic History in their belief.

Calling to Build Church

Meanwhile, the website revealed that the couple returned to America knowing God called them to build a church in the Los Angeles area.

The Stivales established Big Picture Hollywood in 2016. It is a Bible study and fellowship group of celebrities in the Holywood community. 

According to the website, the activity grew, but they knew there was more to God’s calling. They revealed that that moment was when they launched King of Kings Community Los Angeles.

Aside from pastoring, the church revealed that Brian is a professional voice actor. He has hundreds of credits, including TV programs, radio, and many video games. 

In addition, they mentioned that they live in Southern California with their two sons and two furry pets.
