Steve Stoner was blessed to be raised in a strong Christian home. Steve’s father was a Pastor, but it was his mother that lead him to the Lord when he was just seven years old. Shortly after that his mother was diagnosed with M.S. (Multiple Sclerosis) it was then that Steve and his family were really put to the test. However, it was the dedication and faith that Steve’s father lived every day in his commitment to his marriage, his children and his church that exemplified the kind of man Steve wanted to become. His love for the Lord was displayed in all he did and showed Steve in how he, wanted to live his life serving the one true living God. Steve and his wife, Sara, raised three children, Samantha and Seth and Sean. And they have been blessed with eight wonderful grandchildren, with their first great grandson that will be born soon. Life has not always been easy for Steve and Sara…but with the Lord they have survived the death of their youngest son and faced other challenges that are a part of life. In every church Steve has attended, he has been able to use the gifts God has given him to serve in, showing the love of the Lord to those he serves. “I have been truly blessed! The Lord is not just good… He is AWESOME!!!” Steve Stoner Ephesians 2:8-9 8.
