Phill & Laura Stumpf - HOPE RESTORATIONS
Phill and Laura have been married since 2001. They met at a singles retreat hosted by the Lancaster Christian & Missionary Alliance Church. Phill accepted Christ at the age of 22 and attended the Lancaster C&MA and now the Elizabethtown C&MA. Laura grew up in the Elizabethtown C&MA. They have been active in their Church and local community, serving in small Bible study groups, youth group leaders in their Church, volunteered at Cornerstone Youth Center in Elizabethtown and they led small groups within the community for couples who struggle with infertility. They also were led by God to produce a Passion Play on the streets of Elizabethtown in 2013 and through this event, God opened the door for them to go to Nicaragua to open their hearts to missions. The book, Stage Direction by Rachael Kerr was written about how God moved through the lives of the people involved in the Passion Play.
Phill graduated with an Architectural degree and has worked for builders and lumber companies for the last 27 years. Laura has been in Real Estate for last 5 years at Kingsway Realty.
This past June 2016, our Pastor Jim mentioned from the pulpit that he would be heading out that afternoon for Cleveland Envision to check out their ministry. After service, Phill approached Pastor Jim and said, "Hey, while you're out there, keep us in mind. Maybe God can use us out there." Long story short (and several trips to Cleveland later), Phill and Laura have sensed God's call on their life to commit three years to the work in Cleveland. God is doing some amazing things there in Cleveland and it is awesome to see how the skills, talents, and passions He has stirred in Phill and Laura so perfectly fit the needs of the ministry in Cleveland.
