Pastor Steve and Linda DeGroft

Since October, 2012 Pastor Steve and Linda have been ministering here at Stockton Springs.

They come to Stockton Springs with a wealth of experience with nearly 40 years of ministry. For 13 years they ministered in Southern California as youth ministers. They then pastored in Corinth, Maine for 7 years. They then went to work at Word of Life Bible Institute in New York as the Director of Admissions for 7 more years before coming back to Maine to pastor Lisbon Falls Baptist Church for 10 years. They are excited because of what God is doing here in Stockton Springs.

They have one son, Matthew who is a retired Army officer and has been accepted into the ship design apprenticeship program at Bath Iron Works. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Mary, and they have a son, Grant!

Pastor Steve loves road cycling, fishing, golf and hunting and serves on the Stockton Springs Ambulance Squad as an EMT-Basic. Linda loves interior designing and decorating.

They look forward to meeting you at the church soon!
