Don’t forget to stop by the Stores in the Fellowship Hall.

Meet Our Keynote Speaker – Stephanie Wesco


Stephanie was born into a pastor’s home and was involved in ministry from a very young age.  At five-years-old, she placed her faith and trust in Jesus Christ for salvation from sin and was baptized a few years later.  Through her teen years, she strongly felt God’s call to serve Him in missions, and at the age of 17, she fully surrendered to the Lord’s will for her life.

Shortly after graduation, the Lord began leading Stephanie and Charles together, and they were married a year later.  Charles served as an assistant pastor, and Stephanie was involved in various outreach opportunities from children’s ministries to church hospitality.  In addition to these responsibilities, the Wescos were busy raising the eight children with whom God blessed them.

The year 2013 found the family on their faces before the Lord seeking His direction, and for almost two years, they waited, prayed and sought God’s next step in their lives.  That step was Cameroon, West Africa, and after almost three years of deputation, they arrived on Cameroonian soil.  Stephanie and Charles had planned to serve the Lord with their family for the rest of their lives on this foreign field, but the Lord had other plans. On October 30, 2018, just twelve days after arriving and beginning their new ministry, Charles was murdered, and Stephanie and the kids returned to the States.

After her husband’s martyrdom, Stephanie resolved to stay faithful to her Savior. In the months since their return home, she has sought to take steps forward with her children, serving the Lord as He opens doors.  After prayerfully searching for her new normal and healing from the effects of trauma, the Lord directed Stephanie to reach out and minister to other ladies and children who have been through excruciatingly difficult circumstances and are now dealing with the effects of PTSD.

God brought the paths of the Wescos, Armed Forces Baptist Missions, and Wounded Spirits together when Stephanie and her children found hope through the ministries of AFBM’s director, Dr. Doug Carragher, and his dear wife, Debbie. Stephanie’s desire is that the Lord will continue to put the broken pieces of her life back together in a way that will allow her to help others who are also deeply wounded by life’s hardships. She wants to see souls saved, ladies and children discipled, and have the chance to love and help others who need the Balm of Gilead to heal their hurting hearts. She is excited to know and serve the Great Physician who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think and confidently looks forward to seeing Him do amazing things in the wounded spirits of ladies and children for His glory!

Anxiety and Depression:
The Pandemic in Teens and Young Adults
Brenda Kurtz
Anxiety and depression have been steadily on the rise in teens and young adults over the past decade, and the current disruption, isolation and uncertainty are only increasing it. How do we recognize it? How can we help someone who is constantly sad, anxious, empty, and hopeless? What is the biblical basis for our response to young people who are suffering?
Don’t Be a Nag, Woman!
Ann Kindness
As women, we tend to try and “help” our children, our husband, our friends. Ann would love to help you in ways for you not to come across as nagging or bossy. There is a way to encourage one another and not be rude, mean, and bossy! Let’s be an encouragement and have a Godly example in our responses and actions.
