Stephen (1949 - 2023) and his wife, Teri, manifested a deep appreciation of the Christian worldview. As followers of the Lord Jesus Christ it was their privilege and joy in turn to provide practical avenues of discipleship for others. Their ability to articulate the claims of Christ suited them well for the teaching ministry to which they were called. Stephen loved taking student groups to England and he and Teri were able to celebrate their 45th anniversary on the cruise ship, Queen Mary 2. He served as pastor for many years and played an active role in the formation of several alternative education models including the Colorado Heritage Educational School System (CHESS) and Chambers College, located in Greeley, CO.
