Stephen grew up serving with Special Olympics and coaching youth teams from an early age, but in 1994 a calling brought him to recreation ministry at Smoke Rise Baptist in Tucker, GA.
Over the past 20 years, Stephen has continued this calling by serving as a Director of Recreation at FBC Grayson and First Baptist Snellville.
How simple is it, to show character and God’s love through sports?
It's as simple as putting together sports that teach encouragement, God’s Word, and love for one another.
A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
— John 13:34-35
Stephen has been married to Jan for 18 years and they have four children, Josh and Meredith, Stephanie, Christina, and two grandchildren John and Addyson. My family is a great support system for my ministry to allow me follow God’s direction.
Stephen’s interests include: Tennis, basketball, golf, coaching my kids/grandkids in sports and life. As an avid outdoorsman, he loves to hunt and fish and spend time exploring all that God has created for us.
