Episode 103: When God’s Plans Are Bigger Than Our Own

Have you ever thought God was giving you direction but were uncertain what to do next, or whether or not the voice you were hearing was God’s or just your own thoughts? If so, you’re not alone, and today you’ll be encouraged to hear the journey God led Stacy Novak on that eventually landed her in the Director position for her area Bible2School program, impacting over 500 public school students for Christ this past year! People are hungry for God’s Word and excited to see it taught to the next generation – this number makes that clear! Ready to hear how God’s plans are much bigger than our own? Let’s go!

STACY NOVAK became involved in Bible2School in the fall of 2018 when a program started at her children’s school. She volunteered as a small group leader, worship leader, bus helper, and coach. In 2020-2021, God led Stacy to serve in the position of Executive Director. Stacy’s favorite part of Bible2School is Worship, as the students learn while joyfully praising the Lord.   Stacy continues to serve as a program volunteer for her youngest son’s class.

Stacy and her husband Greg have three sons, ages 15, 13, and 9.  They are involved in music and children’s ministries at their church.  Their family enjoys camping, bicycling, yard games, and cooking over a fire as many evenings as possible during the summer.
