Stephanie says she loves spending time with her boys, shopping and watching scary movies. About her position at C1, Stephanie says, “When I was hired, I thought of Proverbs 3:5 ‘Trust in the LORD with all your heart..’ I trust He gave me this great opportunity to help others connect with God and with one another as we move towards so many exciting changes within the church. I am excited to be a part of the change and hope my assistance to the Connections Pastor will bring others closer to Christ!”
