About Stephen
  • Education: Master of Divinity - Wesley Seminary at Indiana Wesleyan University Bachelor of Science - Mid-American Christian University
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Feel free to use anything that may help you in your preaching ministry. Part of my weekly prep is to print off 2 or 3 good sermons from sermoncentral.com on the scripture I will be addressing and glean all I can from them. My prayer is that, though my youth and inexperience will undoubtedly shine through in many of my sermons, you may be able to use something in my messages that would lead people in your congregation closer to Jesus.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: "You’re never as good as you think you are, and you’re never as bad, either." -Rick Warren
