Stephanie Lloyd Hester

Administrative / Development Coordinator

Stephanie grew up in Oneida, TN, earned a Bachelor's degree in English Education (grades 6-12) from Asbury University in Wilmore, KY, and holds a Tennessee teaching license. In 2019, Stephanie moved to Campbell County to work at Galilee Bible Camp, where she had served for many years as a summer staff and program director. Through her work at the camp and her studies in the education field, Stephanie developed a passion for both teaching and Christian discipleship. The combination of these two passions has drawn her to seek out creative opportunities for vocational ministry. Stephanie taught CLC’s Introductory Old Testament and New Testament classes from 2019 to 2022. At the Christian Learning Center, she now serves as the administrative/development coordinator, leading our program growth, curriculum oversight, and community outreach.
