Stephanie Baumgardner came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ when she was 28. She’s served as the Children’s Ministry Director here at Olive Branch since 2001. It is her absolute joy and love of her life to see children falling in love with Jesus!

“I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all of the saints, to grasp* how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16-19

*The Greek word for ‘grasp’ is ‘katalambano’ meaning to “lay hold of; seize, with eagerness, suddenness… with the idea of eager and strenuous exertion.
