Our pastor of children and student ministries joined CrossWinds Church in the Fall of 2014. Before moving to Spirit Lake, he and his wife Ashley lived in Denver, Colorado where Stephen grew up and they both attended seminary. They were both involved in a campus launch in Littleton, CO where Stephen served as a Deacon. Stephen holds a bachelors degree in industrial design technology from the Art Institute of Colorado and a masters of divinity degree from Denver Seminary.
On Jan 22, 2018, Stephen and Ashley welcomed their daughter, Skylar Rae Albi, into the world. God has taught them much through her, including how precious time really is.
Stephen enjoys many hobbies and passions including theology, art, powerlifting, martial arts, movies, target shooting, comic books, audio, and video games. His biggest passion is engaging with people through all these avenues and pointing people to the most creative, powerful, complex and loving God in the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
If you are a student, the parent of a student, or a student at heart (honestly, no one should stop learning) Stephen would love to get to know you and help you navigate what it means to be a Christian and grow to know God deeply.
