Stephen was raised in a Christian home and came to know the Lord at a young age. While attending Grace Covenant in middle school, his faith and calling became clearer after a missionary prayed for him one Sunday. After interning with the youth ministry for two summers and graduating from Virginia Tech, Stephen joined the staff in June of 2012. Stephen enjoys playing basketball and tennis, reading biographies, and going on missions trips. He and his beautiful bride, Elise, have two children, Josiah and Willow.
