I’m Doug Stephens and I am the minister of students here at NEBC. I began my time as a paid minister in January of 2015 the week after I married my college sweetheart, Rebecca (Bex) Stephens. I served for a year and a half as a part time student minister at Mary Niblack Rd. Baptist Church just outside of Ardmore, OK before coming to Northeast in August of 2016 as the full time student minister.
I have my Bachelors in Psychology from East Central University and my Masters of Theological Studies with Emphasis in Missions from Midwestern Theological Seminary. My hobbies include hunting(duck hunting being my favorite), playing video games, watching my students do what they love, and enjoying time with my family and friends.
My focus in the ministry is being missional and intentional in reaching out to our students, and their families, as they go through highs and lows in life by forming relationships and sharing the love of Christ. A unique aspect that I enjoy about student ministry is being able to walk through life with my students as they grow, often through mistakes or tough learning, and watch God work in them to bring about His glory.
