Originally from Albany, Georgia, Stephen grew up in a broken home where church attendance wasn’t a priority. He came to faith in Christ as a teenager and felt a call to the ministry soon thereafter. He married his high school sweetheart Rebecca and God has blessed them with 5 children (Cade 13, Cole 11, Casen 6, Carrington 6, and Caylor 2). He has been in full time ministry for 17 years where he has served churches in Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida. Passionate about teaching God’s Word in a way that connects people to Christ, he believes that the local church is God’s plan A to reach the World. He is passionate about sharing his faith, making disciples, and equipping others to do the same. He has his Master of Divinity from Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary.
