Pastor Steve Durkac

It is my honor to serve as the pastor of CrossHope Chapel and the expository Bible teacher at our Sunday morning gatherings.

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 story here) 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.

Pastor Steve Durkac, CrossHope Chapel, Mobile, AlabamaHere in Mobile, I have served as a hospital chaplain with Providence Hospital and have been affiliated with Southern Baptist churches up until recent years when CrossHope Chapel become an official non-denominational church.

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 recent course work with Calvary Chapel University.

I had returned my former ministerial ordination back to the Seventh-day Adventist denomination and my current ministerial ordination and credentials are Southern Baptist and Nondenominational church granted and recognized.

Pastor Steve Durkac, CrossHope Chapel, Mobile, AlabamaMy philosophy of ministry is centered in Acts 6:4 and the position of the Apostles in the early church: “But we will give ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word” (ESV).

I enjoy writing and have had several books published, including “Prayer is the Answer” and “Leader Lifts: 21 Motivational Lessons for Workplace Success” andPromises thru Scripture. 

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).

Pastor Steve Durkac, CrossHope Chapel, Mobile, AlabamaWhen I’m not teaching the Bible verse-by-verse, you’re likely to find me at the beach. I maintain an active Beach Wedding & Vow Renewal Officiating Ministry for evangelical Christian brides and grooms who come to visit our beautiful upper Gulf Coast beaches of Alabama, Mississippi, and Northeast Florida to get married.
