Stephen Estock


“that you may know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge”

Stephen Estock longs to see local churches serve the Lord in answering Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 3. Since his election as Coordinator in 2013, Stephen has worked to lead the staff of CDM in strengthening the local church. His understanding and desire for this developed as he served churches in Montgomery, AL (1995-2002) and St. Louis, MO (2002-2013).

Stephen met his wife Susan in San Bernardino, CA while he was an USAF officer (which explains why his ever-graying hair is still kept short) and she was on staff with Cru. They married in 1990 and have 3 children. Though he now lives in Atlanta, he still cheers for the St. Louis Cardinals. Having grown up in Alabama, he is a life-long Auburn fan. He has a B.A. in Political Science from Rhodes College, an M.Div. from Covenant Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. in Education from Capella University. When he’s not coordinating the ministry of CDM, he loves to do yard work and DIY projects around the house.  |  View Devotionals by Stephen

Dennis Bennett

Resources Coordinator

Dennis grew up in a small town in New York called Brooklyn. His call to teaching shows God’s sense of humor because in high school he made fun of those in the “Future Teachers of America” Club, but his love of learning has always led him to teach. Dennis received a BA from the State Un. of NY (history) & a M.Div. from Covenant Theological Seminary; DRE, Trinity Theological Seminary. After seminary, he found himself teaching in churches, small groups, training Campus Life workers, and starting a Bible College. Educating others to love God and His Word has been the focus of his life.

In his role with CDM and teaching at Metro Atlanta Seminary, Dennis is living out his life verse:  Ezra 7:10: Ezra [Dennis] set his heart to study the Law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach His statues and rules in Israel [South Africa, America, or wherever].

He has 4 grandchildren, 4,000 books, and the most amazing woman he’s ever met sharing his life. Daily, Dennis prays his children and grandchildren will join him one day in heaven—to God be the Glory!
