Rodney’s passionate goal is to do whatever he can to teach, motivate and resource you to experience and share the Incredible life God has planned for you as you become a remarkable follower of Jesus. He relishes learning, thrives on competition, despises boredom, enjoys witty humor and intriguing story-telling, and admires people who leverage their minds, bodies and talents for phenomenal impact. He adores his wife Cyndy, and respects and is energized by his son Evan, a Florida State med student, his daughter, Abby, a Baylor Bear, and his daughter, Elise, a midwestern high schooler who wants to be surfing.
Family Ministries Pastor
Family ministry has been both Stephan’s source of and outlet for energy since before college. He is passionate about teaching, playing with and loving on kids with the intent to role model what it means to have a purposeful relationship with Jesus Christ. He also hopes that this given career means he never has to fully grow up himself! Stephan has a BA in Practical Ministry from Pillsbury College and Seminary in St.Louis and life long experience in playing and making kids feel loved and important. On his own time, Stephan loves playing ultimate frisbee with his club team, dancing with his wife Leah or doing “tricks” with his daughter Fiona on the trampoline. And don’t be surprised if you see him riding his bike to church any given sunny Sunday morning!
