Stephen’s Story

Given up at birth, adopted by an all white family, abducted, raped, all before reaching the 5th grade, Stephen turned to Culinary Arts and Pastoring to find worth.


Life cooked up a rather unappealing platter.

Ruined appetites.

Forced to feast upon pain.

Sour taste of heartache.

Never knew I’d become the chef of my own life.

Catering hope to those who hunger for change.

Sweet taste of opportunity.

Smothered in the gravy of chance.
