These are the hurting and marginalized persons whom the Lord treasures that Stephen encounters daily. Stephen believes that God puts us where we need to be. In fact, God has equipped Stephen with the tools and purpose to go to the edges of society in search of people who need Christ. Most of the people who seek Stephen out are looking particularly to fill a spiritual void but more than that, they want to be connected to God. Many identify with Stephen as someone who can help them find the way to God, someone that can trust.

The majority of Stephen's efforts involve pastoral counselling at the request of both individuals and agencies. A number of people have come to Christ as a result of successfully getting prayer and devotional groups going within programs. God supplied the motivation and people while Stephen helped supply the resources as well as personal and scriptural support. Together they read scripture, pray together, learn together, and plan futures and how to include God in that future.

Steven supports the people he serves as a Priest and Ordained Minister and he will step into the most difficult of places. For example, Stephen has performed many funeral and memorial services by request for people without families. Stephen holds a Diploma in Social Services, an Undergraduate Degree in Social Development Studies and certification in General Social Work. Stephen has formally studied Spirituality and Addiction at a Masters level and other religious studies. Stephen is involved in Motorcycle Ministry and keeps a high profile in his community and neighbourhood. As a Pastor, Stephen has the love and support of his wife Laurie, and together they have built a unique van to go around doing ministry. This couple believes that when people come to Christ, the work is worth doing!
