Small in Number, Big in Heart

Though we are small in number, our heart for missions and church planting is great. We are praying for the gospel to go out to the city of Seaside, the entire Monterey Peninsula, and beyond. We are expectant that God will send many through GCMB!

The Stepanian Family

John Paul, Sarah, Nina, Jack, Luke, Noel, John Moses, Ezra


The Stepanians serve in Uganda with Sufficiency of Scripture Ministries.

In God’s grace and sovereignty, John Paul and Sarah were raised in families who had God-fearing parents who taught them the gospel. John Paul was trained in Bible and Education at Multnomah Bible College and afterward served as a youth pastor for five years in California. He earned a master’s of Divinity from Phoenix Seminary in 2014. In addition to serving in pastoral ministry for 10 years, he has also worked in construction as a project manager. His wife of 15 years thinks the world of him, and his six children adore him and can’t wait for him to come home every evening! John Paul loves God’s Word and is excited about helping others love it, too.
