Stephen met his best friend and now-wife, Jessica, while still in college and married her soon after. They both serve in ministry together from Discipleship training, speaking at college retreats/events, marriage workshops and most importantly, at home to their two children, Mackenzie (11) and Xavier (9). As a family, they love traveling, trying new foods, swimming, playing board games and watching movies. With the exception of Jessica, they also enjoy playing video games and outdoor sports.
