Stephen is serving as the Church Planter in Residence here at The Hallows Church. Along with his wife Jess, Stephen moved to Seattle in July of 2020 to begin the process of starting a new church in Seattle after taking time to get to know the city, her people and be equipped through The Hallows Church. With over a decade of experience in both church and parachurch ministry, he is excited and humbled to step into this new role as pastor. Most recently, he led a ministry that offered mentoring and case management services to over one thousand high school students across five campuses. He is passionate about showing others that they are seen, heard, and known by God and helping them to see, hear, and know Him more. Side note: Any time he can get into a competitive game of just about anything (sport, board game, or Rock Paper Scissors) he loves to win.
