Stephen was born and raised in Northwest Arkansas. It was at 12 years old that he became a Christian. He had heard the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ many times in the church that he grew up attending, but it was in December of 1997 that the power of the gospel sank in for Stephen and he became a Christian.
After graduating high school, Stephen went to college where he studied criminal justice and political science and eventually met his wife Amanda. Though he entered college with a desire to pursue a career in federal law enforcement, Stephen eventually found himself more passionate about entering ministry. After many talks with pastors that he looked up to, Stephen decided to change course and prepare for a life in pastoral ministry.
Stephen and Amanda were married in 2010 and moved to greater Boston in 2011. They have a son and a daughter who keep them on their toes.
In his free time, Stephen enjoys watching and playing sports, and reading.
