About Stephen
  • Education: B.S. In Religion and Social Science, M.A. In Church Leadership
  • Experience: 29 years in the pastoral ministry
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Three little words..."Work in progress."
  • Family: Great family. I have a beautiful wife and 5 great kids.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Mom and Dad both say that they really like my preaching. But I can never hold a candle to my father who is an incredible preacher.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She says she's glad she married a good preacher because no matter where she goes she'll always have the same pastor/preacher. Which works out nicely since where I go I'll always have the same cook.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Get up, say what God has given you to say and sit down.
  • Books that have had an impact: Crucial Conversations -- Grenny et. al. Plain Account of Christian Perfection -- John Wesley Crazy Love -- Francis Chan Pursuit of God -- A.W. Tozer Communicating For a Change -- Andy Stanley
  • Hobbies: Baseball, Music, Reading
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Get outside of the church. Make an noticeable impact on your community in the name of Christ. People need to hear and see the love of Christ and they won't as long as we don't go.
