Why does Stephanie call herself a

Connection Strategist?

Stephanie hopes to help bridge the gap between churches and their communities. During her almost 20 years of ministry, she has had numerous conversations with local churches asking for help to determine how they can begin new outreach opportunities and pursue ministry growth. 

While each church and community are unique, we are all called to sharing the Gospel and making disciples. Stephanie wants to help you intentionally strategize the needed next steps for your church or ministry so you can better connect with your communities.

    Professor of Biblical studies and ministry at Dallas baptist university

    "Stephanie has become a major source of insight and wisdom related to university students in the 21st Century. She would be in the category of a Tim Elmore resource person for churches, associations and university leaders. I have watched her develop a strategic plan to reach and care for students at the University of North Texas. She is the first person I think of or call when I need help relating and ministering to university students where I serve."

  • Jessica DeRoche

    Senior Director of Flower Mound Campus and The Exchange, North Central Texas College

    "I’ve had the privilege of working with Stephanie for 10+ years as a local college leader. Through the years, I’ve seen Stephanie’s outlook on college ministry morph and change just as college students have morphed and changed. Her desire to equip and guide local churches in this new generation of students has been vetted from her years of working with students and churches. Stephanie understands that the church is key in reaching and assisting students, with her experience she brings to light issues and concerns that students are currently facing and how churches can understand and love those students. Again, Stephanie equips local churches and leaders working with students. Equipping is different for each church/ministry, but Stephanie's ability to focus and understand your church or ministry is key in knowing how to equip you and your church. She is able to assist with guiding your church/ministry with knowledge and respect for procedures and outlooks of varying types in order to reach students."

    Executive Director of Denton Baptist Association

    "Stephanie is an excellent source of information on how to reach today's college students. Why is that? She works in the midst of the UNT campus everyday as she leads the BSM which reaches out to 38,000 young adults. She understands this generation and is willing to engage, lead and disciple this next generation."
