Stephen’s parents were missionaries in the US and overseas, so its hard to say exactly where he’s from. Stephen’s wife Natalie, however, was born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida. They were married in 2009 and have three boys, Isaac, Cai, and Luke. Stephen enjoys wrestling with his boys, hunting, reading, cooking, and action shooting sports.
Stephen was called to serve Collinsville First Baptist in 2011 after serving churches in the Florida Panhandle, and Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He wants everyone to sing in the choir, and is passionate about intentional discipleship.
