Pastor / Head of Staff
Stephanie grew up on the east coast of Florida, but began easing her way north when she graduated from high school. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and religion from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia and a Master of Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. Stephanie’s first call in ordained ministry was as an associative pastor serving the people of First Presbyterian Church of Lincoln, Nebraska. While serving in Nebraska, Stephanie met and married her husband, Phillip. They started their family in Lincoln with the births of Karoline (2005) and William (2007). God’s next call to Stephanie took the family to Hudson, Wisconsin. Margaret joined the Anthonys in 2010. Stephanie served as the solo pastor of First Presbyterian Church for almost nine years before coming to Fox Valley Presbyterian Church in October 2016. In her spare time Stephanie enjoys knitting, binge watching British period dramas, and riding bikes with the family.
