Reverend Stephen Eberhard



Stephen Eberhard was born in New Bern, North Carolina, but moved to West Lafayette, Indiana with his family at the age of 8. Stephen grew up attending First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Downtown Lafayette where both of his parents were ministers. Stephen met his wife, Megan, while attending Harrison High School (2010 graduates) and they wed in July 2016. They welcomed their first daughter, Bonnie Mae, in February 2019. 

Stephen received his Bachelor’s of Science in Public Affairs at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis, earning a degree in civic leadership and a minor in political science. After gaining some experience working on various political campaigns and public institutions, Stephen decided to answer his call to ministry.

Stephen graduated from Christian Theological Seminary in December 2020 and was ordained by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in July of 2021.
