The Bible study leaders offer Bible studies during the fall and spring semesters. Usually alternating between Old Testament and the New Testament, these Bible studies are for all women from new to mature believers.

Using the Bible and free online resources, women are taught to study the Bible and discover what God has revealed to us.

Fall and Spring semesters on Wednesday nights @ 6:30pm.

Richland Creek Community Church Women's Bible Study Leaders

Stef Dowd

http://www.richlandcreek.com/uploads/DSC_3032.jpgI grew up in Virginia and came to know the Lord at age 16. While faithfully attending church with my family for years, a decision to follow Christ brought a shift in focus. This shift led me to attend Liberty University, majoring in Biblical Studies. Studying the Bible brings me closer to and more like the God whom I love and who loves me. My hope is for women to develop a passion for the Bible, leading to a deeper relationship with the God who loves them. I have been married to my husband Pastor Mike Dowd, Preschool Pastor here at Richland Creek, for 16 years and serve alongside him. We have three daughters: Sadie—14, Mia—12, and Ella—9.

We have been members of Richland Creek since 2006.

http://www.richlandcreek.com/uploads/Faith.jpgI have been a member at Richland Creek Community Church for over seven years. I am married to Dale and we have 3 children: Noah—age nine, Lily—age seven andDaniel—age seven. Dale plays electric guitar with the worship team every Sunday. For the most part I am a stay-at-home mom and homeschool our children. I am also a director for our homeschool group, Classical Conversations. In addition, I also work as an infusion nurse a few shifts per week. If I have free time, I enjoy running, reading and cooking! 

I graduated from Florida State University with a Nursing Degree in 2000. 

I was raised Catholic, but did not have a personal relationship with my Savior until I was in my mid-twenties. I had never studied the Bible for myself. A pastor in South Carolina challenged my husband and I to look into baptism by immersion. Because of this challenge, I began to read the Bible for myself. Through a series of God-ordained circumstances, I realized my lost, sinful condition and placed my faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I was then baptized. 

Since then, my love of the Word, and its transformative power in the hearts and minds of women, has grown. I desire for other women to come to know deeply their Creator and Savior through the study of the Word. The Word has been an instrument of change in my life, and I desire for all Christ-followers to experience this and be able to walk rightly in their faith. I have been a part of the Women Equipping Women ministry for five years now, and I enjoy actively doing the six disciplines, teaching Bible Study, and continuing to grow and learn right along with the women of the Creek!
