Our Pastor

Steve Durkac

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.

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.”

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.

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.

Here in Mobile, I have served as a hospital chaplain with Providence Hospital and have been affiliated with Southern Baptist churches.

I am the author of Prayer is the Answer, having written its basic core message while serving as a denominational Prayer Ministries Coordinator & Strategist assisting local congregations in developing and integrating prayer ministries into the life of the church.

My family and I live in 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).
