Allan Austin

Sexton

What gives me the most joy serving in ministry is knowing that I’m not in service to man, I participate in ministry to advance the kingdom of God. Because “I can do all thing to through Christ who strengthens me.”

David Adesina During

Music Director

David has been serving as Supply Organist in 2010.  Music is a powerful medium through which we are able to express emotions, deep feelings and sentiments as we commune with God. The music ministry seeks to facilitate this experience as often as possible.   When we can truly address one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs and when we are able to sing and make melody to the Lord with our hearts, then, such joyous moments make me truly joyful.

Arlene August

Supply Organist

I became a member of St. Stephen somewhere around 1996 or 1997 some 24 plus years.  From the start I have been involved in the music ministry of the church, and even in retirement, have continued doing the same.  Music is the joy that I bring to St. Stephen.
