FOUNDATION

Audacious Faith is founded on the following principles:
  • We are created to live vibrant, joyful, daring lives. We are not meant to simply survive our journey on this planet.
  • We are relational beings. We need, both in giving to and receiving from, one another in order to flourish.
  • The foundation of all life-changing adventures is audacious faith. And these adventures lead to a life that is beyond our wildest dreams.

"When hearts are freed, lives are changed."

Stephanie Hester, Founder of Audacious Faith

In order to truly know about Audacious Faith, you need to know a bit about its Founder, Stephanie Hester. Stephanie says it took her over 40 years, but through daring faith and true, authentic community she finally experienced healing and remarkable freedom. These are the things she wants to give to others.

She has worked with Fortune 500 and Inc. 500 companies including IBM, Genworth Financial, and iContact, and has been a keynote speaker at regional and national conferences.  Stephanie has been featured in national publications including the Wall Street Journal, More magazine, and ABC News online.

Stephanie began painting as therapy for her PTSD and her art is now displayed in homes and businesses across the country.  In her own words, “I paint to heal, to communicate, to celebrate.” She is an advocate for our military and is involved with several organizations that support them and their families.
