I am a speaker, writer, kate spade bag addict and coffee snob currently serving as the Pastor of Children and Family Ministries at Alert Evangelical Covenant Church. I have a BA in Communications from Sterling College and a MA from Covenant Theological Seminary, and recently relocated to the gorgeous Flint Hills of Kansas. Part of my job is writing bible studies, so I’m also a theology nerd with bookcases full of even more nerdy books. Connect with me on Twitter or Instagram at @stephanienels. Oh, and chocolate makes the world a better place. So does Jesus.
