OUR FIELD MISSIONARIES
OUR HEAD OFFICE TEAM
Edi Stephenson - Chair
Edi joined the staff at Crossway Baptist church nine years ago as a pastor and oversees the prayer and missional community departments at Crossway. She completed her M.A. at Tabor in church practice. She and Dale have been mentoring pastoral couples across the denominations for the past five years.
In 2019 she along with Dale is involved with rolling out a program called Building a Discipling Culture (BDC) to seek to play a small part in waking the “sleeping giant” called Australian Christianity to again steward the gospel fruitfully.
She has a passion for evangelism and to see the church as individuals embracing their God given mandate to be on mission wherever God has placed them.
