    Stacy has been involved in Bible Study Fellowship for 5 years and began attending Rocky Peak just over a year ago. BSF was instrumental in helping Stacy to understand Gods Word and in helping her to understand Jesus’ sacrifice for her, which caused her to surrender her life to Him a few years ago. 

     

    She was led to Rocky Peak at the encouragement of her sister and brother in law, as well as some very close friends, Danny & Crystal Fernandez. Crystal, a long time Rocky Peak partner, placed Stacy’s name in the wall of the Worship Center in 2013 during the Assignment construction, praying that Stacy would one day find the Lord.  Her prayers were answered!!  And now, here she is as part of the staff!! 

     

    Stacy has a passion for family, administration and faith and she loves being a part of the Life Group Team where she gets to use the gift of administration on a daily basis. She is humbled by His loving kindness and goodness on a daily basis.
