Stephen is a founding member of the organization, contributing his heart from our inception.

John Michael Stainsby

FOUNDER & PRESIDENT

In 2012, John retired from a successful and rewarding 30 year career in the Automotive parts industry.

With his wife Connie, they founded this ministry of God's love the very same year. They now reside in Ghana full-time with the children, at the Step By Step Home for Children with Special Needs. Because of their love for the Lord, they have faithfully devoted the rest of their lives in service to Him.

It is John's belief that God's word "Love never fails" - 1 Corinthians 13:8, will be the catalyst and sure foundation that takes Step By Step to other nations and ultimately "Worldwide."
