Stephanie Ike Returns to Church After Maternity Leave: For the first time, after nearly two months on maternity leave following the birth of her daughter, Pastor Stephanie Ike will be speaking this Sunday at One Church, where she serves as an executive pastor.
The author, pastor, and mother of one have invited all to join her in person as she will be delivering words that have been “marinating” in her “spirit”.
peaking in Saturday’s Instagram video she said, “Hey family. I have some news I’m going to share with you. So some of you may know I have been on maternity leave, and having a daughter has just been life-changing in the best way. Now this Sunday, I’m inviting you to join me at One for In-Person at 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m.”
She noted, however, that Global Time will be put forward for those not in Los Angeles, where the One Church is located.
Stephanie continued by saying that she is excited “for this word that has been literally marinating in my spirit and it’s so timely, so weighty, and I’m excited to see what God does through it”.
After her baby shower in August, Stephanie Ike became less active on social media, leaving most people curious and anticipating the news of her baby.
However, in an October 9 Instagram live video seeking to address some of the pastor’s major life updates, Stephanie announced that she and her husband have welcomed a baby girl.
The announcement came over one month after the birth of the baby, whom Stephanie addressed as “my heart.”
“Pregnancy was really beautiful. But the baby is here. She is here. I can’t even believe it has been over a month,” she said.
Although Stephanie admitted experiencing some challenging phases during the pregnancy, she explained that words of encouragement and assurance received from God during an encounter sustained her during those challenging times.
