EXECUTIVE PASTOR STEPHANIE SCRAGG
Stephanie Brown Scragg grew up in a musical family and traveled around the world as a small child until she became a young adult singing with her family, The Jody Brown Indian Family. She wrote and recorded with Crossroads Records until moving to Huntington WV.
After moving to Huntington, Stephanie graduated from Marshall University with her RBA specializing in Medical Sciences. After graduation, Stephanie became the Worship Pastor of a large internationally known music program at a church in Huntington, WV.
In 2008, she aided in the launch of a kettle corn business called Scragglepop Kettlecorn. The company has now grown substantially as is recognized as the number one kettle corn vendor with Marshall University, Big Sandy Superstore Arena, and is moving rapidly into the Charleston, WV and her hometown area in Cherokee, NC. This business expansion would not have been possible without the team God assembled in Stephanie, her husband Dale, Pastor Kevin West, and his wife Leesa.
In 2013 Stephanie formed a ministry team with Expression Ministries Network, (a network connected internationally that she helped create) and Expression Church of Huntington. Stephanie facilitates worship leaders and ministers through out the network.
She also serves as CEO of Expression Production Group, overseeing the radio, finance, concessions and production divisions. Today, she encourages and helps many business owners in starting their business as well as developing their brands. She has a deep passion to see people reach for their wildest dreams.
Today, in ministry, she is a writer, pastor, preacher, and is revolutionizing the encounter experience, moving it away from a singer performing in front of an audience to being a part of a ministry team that brings the presence of the Lord by engaging the congregation and releasing a tangible encounter in ministry gatherings. She is also instrumental in the development of many young worship leaders.
In 2017, Stephanie oversaw the construction and development of Expression Church’s twelve-acre campus. Her role as Executive Pastor developed even more through this process giving her the insight in how to lead people from every walk of life.
