Born in Seattle and raised in California, Stephanie moved to Eugene in 2013, quickly fell in love with the PNW and jumped headfirst into serving at New Hope Eugene. Having grown up a pastor’s kid in the church, Stephanie comes from a multi-generational ministry family who's parents are still pastors of their church in Southern California today.
Stephanie’s love for music started as a child with her first experience singing in church was at 3 years old (with lots of help from mom, dad & sissy). Her childhood/teenage years consisted of voice and piano lessons, competitions, performances, and musicals. She watched her parents sing, perform, and lead worship for many years, and from a young age, they led her to explore what it means to lead people in worship. As she grew older, becoming a worship leader was a natural progression for Stephanie, but she discovered early on that WORSHIPPING was the true calling; it just so happens that, most of the time, she’s doing it from the platform with a microphone in hand. She is passionate about lives being changed through the power of prayer and worship. Stephanie has been blessed to be a part of New Hope Eugene and is looking forward to seeing how the people of NHE grow deeper in faith, and become more and more passionate in their expression of love for God.
Stephanie met her husband, Winston (our creative director) through the New Hope network and they were married in 2016! They have a fur baby, kitty Jerome, and (if a certain party can be convinced) they’ll be adding a puppy to the family!
