Pastor Steve Durkac

Pastor Steve Durkac, CrossHope Chapel, Mobile, Alabama

It is my honor to serve as the pastor of CrossHope Chapel and lead in the facilitation of our verse-by-verse chapter-by-chapter Bible teachings and in providing pastoral care for our fellowship.

I hope to meet you in person, before the rapture that is, on either a Sunday morning at our chapel or meeting up for coffee and conversation, but let me tell you a little about me…

Since giving my life to the Lord Jesus Christ, (you can read my miracle conversion testimony) I have been involved in vocational church ministry beginning in the early 1980’s as an itinerary revivalist, hospital chaplain, and senior pastor with churches and ministries in Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Alabama.

Here in Mobile, I have served as a hospital chaplain with Providence Hospital and have been affiliated with Southern Baptist churches. (You can read more at Our Beginnings page.)

I hold degrees in religion and pastoral ministry from Southern Adventist University (I am a former Adventist pastor), post-graduate Clinical Pastoral Education with University Hospital in Augusta, Georgia and Baptist Hospital in Pensacola, Florida, and course work with Calvary Chapel University and Dallas Theological Seminary.

My philosophy of ministry is centered on the verses of Acts 6:4 and Ephesians 4:11, which means that I am most passionate about praying for our people and ministering the Word of God to them as a “pastor and teacher.”

My family and I live in west Mobile, Alabama and that includes my beautiful wife Steph, and I have been blessed with four children, two grandchildren, and our family pets Keef (a Dachshund) and Jael (a German Shepherd), and author of “Prayer is the Answer”  having served in two different  denominations as a Prayer Ministries Coordinator & Trainer.
