Pastor Steve & Deana Stone
Pastor Steve is the Associate Pastor and Youth Pastor at Liberty Baptist Church. He and his wife, Deana, have been serving at Liberty since the year of 2000 and he currently leads the teenagers as well as the Sunday morning worship and the athletic programs.
Pastor Steve and Deana have served the Lord since 1990 in various ministries pastoring and working in children's ministries, teen ministries, college and career classes, marriage classes, music ministries, and adults programs.
Liberty Baptist Church was founded 1987 by Pastor Mike Messer and his wife Terri. Where we once worshipped together in a Days Inn, a Go-Kart building and a YWCA, we now enjoy the Lord's blessings of a 9-acre property and a beautiful building in West Indianapolis, next to Clermont.
We had the privilege of breaking ground in 2003 to expand and build a new life center. This expansion has allowed us to reach the community in many new ways with youth sports and community festivals.
