Thank you for visiting our website.  RealDeal Ministries, Pastors Steve and Lennette Deal, moved to St. Augustine, FL on April 4, 2016 to fulfill the vision God birthed in them 8 years prior. The timing of our move was very specific based on the completion of five assignments God had given them.  God told us that when these assignments were completed, the ground would be spirtually ready for what He was calling us to do and fulfill. In August of 2015, those assignments were complete, and we began to pray about the timing of our move. As Steve went away to fast and pray in December of 2015 for God's perfect timing, God spoke very loud.  We arrived in April of 2016 totally by faith, moving on God's Word and prompting  to trust Him for provision and direction.

As visionaries, we want to thank all of our friends and family for your belief in the visions God has given us over the years.  We are asking you to consider being a part of what God is doing in us and through us here in St. Augustine, Florida, the first city in America.  We waited over 8 years for this vision to unfold.  God has called us to be "one of the" gatekeepers of this city; a city where every nation and religion had to pass through in order to get to this great nation; a place where the first revival happened in America, and where one of the first key Civil Rights Movements advanced.  But also a place that has been sited as having the fifth highest concentration of witchcraft in America. 

We have planted Life Groups in the city, our hearts being to see "Every Neighborhood in this City" reached with the hope and love of Jesus, either through our ministry, or churches across this city who establish Life Groups of their own.  We have already helped to train other churches on how to establsih Life Groups within thier own churches.  Our first Life Group began here June 2, 2016.  We now have a thriving Life Group on Monday Nights called "Eclectic" Life Giving Group and up until this past summer had one on Thursday Nights. We will reopen that one as God speaks to us. We are seeing people coming who are truly hungry to know who Jesus really is.

We also lead a Life Giving Group called "Canvas" for all Millenials in partnership with Church on The Rock of St. Augustine.  We are all a Canvas in which God wants to write.  This group is on Wednesday nights in our home at 7:30 PM.  This group of young adults come read to learn and share.  

As the Lord brings supernatural provision, we will be developing a Ministry Training Center to raise up young people to do the work of the ministry, by reaching this city first, and then the World. Our heart is to help point them in the direction of their destinies.  Someone recently who is involved in our ministry told us "You two ARE the training center".  What we are believing God to do in our own training center, we are already doing in our home.  We were very blessed and overwhelmed by that comment. 

As you peruse through this site, we invite you to partner with us in this adventure through prayer and financial support if God so prompts you as we reach America’s first city, St. Augustine, Florida.

Good day friends and partners. Here is an update on the missionary support we have raised thus far for our work here in St. Augustine, FL. The vision God has given us for this city is HUGE. You can see the vision here on this website.  

We are believing God to see a Life Group or Home Group in every neighborhood of this city. Not because we did it, but that the city catches the vision.

Many of you know that Steve and I wrote a very powerful book of healing for children and adults wounded by their fathers and for those who have great experiences with their fathers yet need to understand those who did not! Part of our vision for this book is for them to be placed in the jails for FREE. The only catch is they are not free for us to purchase of course although we are the authors. Steve is in the jail every week!!! Men are getting saved. He wants to give these to the men for free! We just can not afford to buy them all ourselves. God spoke to us when we wrote this book that the jails are full of men and women with father wounds. As they read this book and find their healing the Lord said they would Not be repeat offenders anymore. 

The Lord birthed this book while we were pastoring in the inner city in Tampa, FL at an amazing church we birthed called All Nations Outreach Center. The children and people of that church helped us finish this project. The idea of the book began to spread and people all over began to send in their letters. There is a collection of 50 letters written to peoples fathers, unedited, un-cut and very very real. THIS IS NOT AN INNER CITY PROBLEM.. THIS IS A WORLD WIDE PROBLEM and it is impacting eery household in one way or another not because that household maybe had that experience but because we are impacted every day by people and so many people have been wounded in this relationship that God intended to reflect his love as a Father for his children. The enemy always comes in to destroy everything that speaks of victory.

We usually charge $12 for these books if they are not shipped ($15 for shipped books) BUT if you want to sow and buy a book to be placed in the jails for free we might be able to order them for around $8 each! Will you consider sowing and helping us with this project?

If you know a jail or prison in your area and you would like to order these books and have them shipped to your church/organization/home contact us as well. We do ask that you give them for FREE if you only pay this amount.

Also if you would like to help us sow into changed lives by making our book free to those men and women who are incarcerated? Please click "Donate" and designate "Prison Release" with your donation. Thank you!
