My name is Steve Durkac, a believer in Jesus Christ as the only Way of redemption, the Bible as God’s authoritative word to fallen humanity, and in the soon return of Jesus Christ – our blessed hope!
We realize that many in our community do not have a relationship with someone that they can call “pastor” and that is one way we are here for you and your family.
I am available to talk, to pray, or to help with clergy services regardless of your involvement with West Mobile Bible Fellowship or any other congregation in our community.
I am so grateful to have the privilege to lead out in our Sunday morning gathering and to be available to our community for pastoral care ministry.
By way of introduction, I am an ordained church minister who grew-up Catholic, but has spent 30 years of my adult life in vocational church ministry with Adventist, Nondenominational Evangelical, and Southern Baptist churches, serving in both in pastoral and chaplain roles.
In years past I have served as a local church pastor with the Adventist denomination churches and ministries in Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina, and as a pastor in South Carolina, in northeast Alabama, and as a denominational prayer ministries with the Conference. I have served as a hospital chaplain, with both independent, Baptist, and Catholic hospitals in Georgia, Florida, and here in Mobile, Alabama with Providence Hospital.
In 2000 I became affiliated with Southern Baptist churches and Associations in the Mobile, Alabama area, serving in prayer ministries for the Mobile Baptist Association, on the Alabama board of evangelists, and today with West Mobile Bible Fellowship as an early Send North America church plant partner.
I hold degrees in religion and pastoral ministry from Southern Adventist University and post-graduate Clinical Pastoral Education with University Hospital and Baptist Hospital in Pensacola, Florida.
You can read about my personal conversion story of how I met Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, bringing me a new purpose, identity, and a God-given plan for my life! - “Teenage Wasteland.”
I live in west Mobile, Alabama with my beautiful wife Steph, two of my four children still at home, two others close by in Mobile, our family pet Keef, and I have two grandchildren.
In addition to my pastoral care ministries with West Mobile Bible Fellowship, I have an active ministry with beach wedding officiating for destination do-it-yourself brides looking for an evangelical vocational pastor to officiate here along the Gulf Coast beaches and at our Wedding Chapel ceremonies.
COFFEE & CONVERSATION…
If you live in the Gulf Coast area or will be in the area, I will be happy to sit down with you over a cup of coffee at a Starbucks or at our chapel to talk about pastoral care issues that you may want an ear and/or some insight on. Please contact me and I ‘ll be happy to arrange a meet-up.
