Stephen Goodell, Administrative and Grant Services Coordinator

Stephen has an extensive background in marketing and sales in digital advertising. He has assisted in the development of robust and engaging advertising campaigns for top retailers, has worked in accounting support for some of the largest organizations in the Tampa Bay area, and served as a real estate agent for Keller Williams. Stephen holds a Bachelor’s in Marketing from Penn State and is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity in Chaplaincy from Liberty University.

Stephen’s passion is to serve. When he is not working, he ministers alongside his wife as Soldiers of The Salvation Army. Their mission is to share the Lord’s love to those who are facing difficult trials and tribulations in life. He has lived in Florida since 2004 and is originally from Buffalo, NY (not too far from the Motherhouse of the Allegany Franciscans!) and also spent part of his childhood in Pennsylvania. He enjoys travelling and exploring the new and beautiful places this world has to offer.

Stephen provides administrative and logistical support to the Allegany staff team and board of directors, manages accounts payable, performs related bookkeeping activities, and assists with preparation and tracking of the budget. He organizes and expedites team workflow, and coordinates meeting schedules, calendars, and travel. Stephen also maintains Allegany’s physical office space and support team members working onsite or remotely with business needs, provide event management, and extend quality customer service to Allegany’s board of directors, committees, and community partners.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

– Jeremiah 29:11
