About Pastor Stephen

“Some people have shared with me, ‘How do I deal with what is deeply
ingrained in me since I was a child? To maybe not hate, but certainly not trust someone of another color.’”

Pastor Stephen ministers at the First Presbyterian Church, where he helps to address the gap and tensions among the new- and long-time Shelbyville residents. He was the first local Christian minister to reach out to the Muslim imam, in an attempt to tackle mistrust in the community.
