(It's a Family Thing)
Stephanie has been married, for 15 years, to her childhood sweetheart. They have served in ministry together since they were teenagers. They have four beautiful children, who each play a part in their ministry as well. Recently, the Slaybaugh family has become a foster home for children in need. Stephanie has been known to bring her children and husband on stage with her. Each of them have been anointed and called to a purpose. She believes in the family serving Christ together as a unified force for the Kingdom. She is a firm believer that her family is her first ministry.
Stephanie and Josh began their ministry working on staff at different churches. They were youth and worship directors for 10 years. While on staff, they felt God calling them to start their own non-profit ministry. They were obedient to that call and began to travel wherever God would lead. After leaving staff positions, doors, both nationally and internationally, began to open. They have recently formed a home church for young adults. They open their home up one night a week and pour into this age group. It has grown and some of those young adults have started to travel with them in ministry. They have a heart for people that is evident in the way they serve. Slaybaugh Ministries is all about reaching people for Christ, by loving them where they are. Although Stephanie is the one who is often on stage and in the "spotlight", Josh plays a vital role in every aspect of their ministry. They are a unified team whose vision is big and anointing is undeniable.
Stephanie is known for her transparency when ministering. Whether she is singing or speaking, her genuine yet bold approach leaves you feeling motivated and determined. She is confident in the authority God has placed in her and she will propel you into a place where you are ready to break the chains in your life.
