A Word from Pastor Steve Durkac…

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 conversation story here) I have been involved in vocational church ministry beginning in the early 1980’s as an itinerary revivalist, chaplain, and pastor with churches and ministries in Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Alabama.

Pastor Steve DurkacHere 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-denomination 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 still enjoy chaplaincy through our WorkforceCare Ministry and 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 and Jael.

In addition to my pastoral ministry, I have an active Beach Wedding & Vow Renewal Officiating Ministry for evangelical Christian destination beach brides along the Gulf Coast.
