Lead Pastor: Shay Pendergraft

NextStep Fellowship is special to me because it’s been my church home since I was 5 years old. I grew up being mentored and discipled by this church family and now have the privilege of leading and pastoring them. As a young teen I began volunteering in multiple different ministries, eventually led our youth group along with my husband for 6 years, and then became our children’s ministry director. In early 2016 I answered the call to vocational ministry when I stepped into the role of Family Ministry Pastor and, as of August 2022, I am now the Lead Pastor here at NextStep. It is impossible to overstate the impact that the people in this congregation have had in my life growing up in a single-parent household.  NextStep (at the time Skyway Church of God) showed up in very tangible ways in my childhood and youth to really show me what it means to be Christ-followers; they were the hands and feet of Jesus for me. When I call them my church family I truly mean it… we are a family and there’s always room for more at our family table.
