Pastor of Congregational Care
Stephanie graduated with a BS in French Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania where she met her husband Tim in the trombone section of the marching band. Stephanie retired from teaching in 2014 and answered her call to ministry in 2016. Stephanie earned her MDiv from Evangelical Seminary in Myerstown, Pennsylvania in 2019 while serving as a Licensed Local Pastor in western Iowa. Her journey into ministry, and eventually here at Wesley, is filled with many “Jonah moments” which have given Stephanie the opportunity to experience life in many different spaces and places. Sometimes life just isn’t one straight line from start to finish.
Stephanie and Tim settled in Bethlehem in August of 2019 after years of moving from town to town, state to state, and country to country. It was then that they promised their sons, Tom and Lucas, that they will both graduate from BASD. That should keep Stephanie here until at least 2027!
Pastor of Congregational Care is a new title for Stephanie, but one that she is certain allows her to best use her gifts of compassion, support, and encouragement.
Together, Pastor Stephanie and the people of Wesley Church will continue to do great things in the mission of making disciples of Jesus for the transformation of the world.
