She was offered a position at a Full Gospel Church on staff as a Counselor/Deliverance Minister, and a member of the Praise and Worship Team.  She lead a Foundations class and a program for alcoholics and drug addicts, and attended Bible School while she also worked as a Secretary/Switchboard operator for a Christian Counselor’s Office and for Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, while raising two beautiful daughters.   Throughout the years she worked as the Church Secretary for several different churches in the Peoria area and her former husband and her had a Commercial Cleaning Business.  The Full Gospel Church she worked in went from 35 to nearly 350 in about three years.  Stephanie and her youngest daughter moved to Florida in 1989.

Today Stephanie and her husband Stephen work as missionaries for Zoeller Motorsports Ministries which they began in 1998, where they take the Word of God to racetracks all over the country.  Stephanie is the Praise and Worship Leader for the services they perform each race weekend.  She often leads the prayers and occasionally needs to fill in for Stephen with preaching the service.  Stephanie began preaching shortly after the ministry began and continues to do singing and speaking engagements throughout the Florida area.  Occasionally she is asked to sing the National Anthem before the start of the race. She is an ordained deacon in her church and is a member of the Praise and Worship counsel.  She is also a certified Chaplain that helps to train other Chaplains.  She and her husband began taking children with Cancer to the baseball games nearly fourteen years ago, and turned that into an event where they take the children with cancer and their families for a three day weekend at the racetracks (paying all expenses for the families through year round fund raising.)  This last year they celebrated their 10th annual Kids Racing for Life event with over 50 families in attendance.

Stephanie also teaches the Kids Paddock, leads bible studies, counsels families, crews and workers, sets up and fundraises for car rallies, auctions, raffles and Kids Events.  She has been called upon to fill the pulpit for several ministers during their absence, from Baptist churches in Illinois to Methodist and non-denominational churches in Florida.  She loves reading her bible and reading through their thousand book library about the Lord.  Her greatest joy in life is spending time with her family and her 7 gorgeous grandchildren, ages 6 months to 14 years old.  She is also working on a book that is focused on her life in ministry, both past and present which will feature the times she has been able to sit at the feet of some of the world’s greatest preachers.  She will also include the times she has met and spent time with their friends, the famous author and screen writer Tommy Tenney and his wife who is a famous music composer and recording artist.  Most recent being this last Sunday when they were blessed to have lunch with Tommy, Jeanie and their precious daughters.  She hopes the book will be finished next year.
