Meet our Staff

Meet our Minister

Rev. Debra McGill

I was warmly welcomed to SSOTH January 2019 having served rural ministry for 14 years and now 11 years in urban ministry. 

I believe we are in the “Age of the Spirit” and I look forward to accompanying others of all ages and stages in life on a spiritual journey of discovery: “who we are called to be” in this world where we are deeply concerned about environmental and social justice issues both locally and globally. I’m passionate about many things, creative worship, bible study, taizé and engaging with people as they share their stories.

I continue to look forward to meeting the folk of this community.

Meet our Church Office Administrator

Brenda Blinco

My love of St. Stephen’s began over 20 years ago attending with my children, volunteering in the nursery during services, and later art of our legendary giant garage sales! 

When the position of office administrator became available, it felt like the right fit from  the start, having worked in the administration field with both large and small companies over the years. 

With this position and volunteering in stewards, fundraising, etc., it is a pleasure to work with everyone to reach our goals, as well as spending time with our wonderful congregation.
