Stacy’s friends would say that she brings a “can do,” “get it done” attitude to the table. She likes to investigate the Word of God, taking difficult concepts and conveying them with simplicity and relevancy. Incorporating illustrations, props & multimedia when teaching helps Stacy connect biblical truths with today’s culture and living. Simple, applicable & direct! Whatever it takes to capture the hearts of all people—generations and nations. Stacy taught several sessions in Life Church's The Building Blocks of Life and Finding Light in Darkness Bible study courses.
Stacy is an outdoorsy, sporty kind of girl. World travel is her passion. She loves to experience new people groups with all their culture, customs & foods. What is Stacy’s life verse? That would have to be: “…they that know their God will be strong and do exploits.” Wherever God calls, she will go—have passport, will travel!
Stacy lives in Lake Jackson with her fun-loving, servant-hearted, always on-the-go, engineer, Excel-guru husband, Mike. He’s the smartest “big kid” you’ll ever meet!
Stacy gets her outdoorsy, sporty personality from being a West Coast / Pacific Northwest girl. She was born in Santa Barbara, California. Later her family moved to Spokane, Washington. At the age of 16, when her parents were divorcing, Stacy’s spirit-filled, public high school, basketball coach invited her to church one fall night. That night in 1983, Stacy made the most radical decision of her life—she received Jesus and was filled with the Holy Spirit. Her life was never the same!
After turning down several sports scholarships, Stacy answered the call of God on her life and attended Rhema Bible Training Center. Upon graduation in 1987, she joined Ralph & Shirley Hagemeier in Kalemie, Democratic Republic of the Congo. Stacy taught in the Bible College, loved to travel to the bush, and became fluent in Swahili. Stacy lived in East Africa for nearly six years.
Stacy met Mike Collins at The Dow Chemical Company and the two were married in 2002. Mike and Stacy came to Life Foursquare Church in September, 2005. They love serving at LIFE in every way possible—from Camera Crew to Wednesday Night teachers to Youth Specialist with La Vida, our Spanish expression. But…more ardently than all…Stacy is excited to head up our Missions & Outreach Department. Stacy has traveled to or through 21 countries so far…more to come…wanna go?!
