My name is Steve Durkac, a believer in Jesus Christ as the only Way of redemption and a believer in the Bible as God’s inerrant word to fallen humanity. I am so grateful to have the privilege to lead out in our Sunday Bible study and to be available to our community for pastoral care services.
I am ordained Evangelical Protestant church minister who grew-up Catholic, but has spent 30 years of my adult life in vocational church ministry with various Christian denominations.
In years past I have served as a local church pastor with the Seventh-day 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, and I still maintained my personal affiliation with Baptist ministries, but have also been involved with United Methodist Churches and Nondenominational churches during that time.
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 Stephanie, two of my four children at home, two close by in Mobile, our family pet Keef, and 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.
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.
