Todd & Stephanie Fletcher

Breakout Session Speaker

Todd grew up in church as a child but drifted away at around the age of 13 after his parents’ divorce. Later, while serving in the U. S. Coast Guard, he and his wife Stephanie returned to church where they became faithful members, serving in various capacities. Although he was a faithful church member, it wasn’t until age 35 that Todd realized he had never truly surrendered his life to Jesus. At that point the Lord both saved him and called him to full-time vocational ministry.

He immediately began attending Liberty University until shortly after his retirement from the Coast Guard when he received his Bachelor of Science in Christian Ministry in 2016. Todd came to serve as Pastor of Beulah Baptist Church in October 2018 and is currently pursuing a Masters of Arts in Religion/Expository Preaching from the Rawlings School of Divinity at Liberty University. Prior to coming to Beulah he served as the Pastor of Missions and Discipleship at Temple Baptist Church in his hometown of Simpsonville, S.C. Todd has been married to his wife Stephanie since 1999 and they are the proud parents of two children, Bryce and Kiersten.
