Jerry King (Advisor) 2014 to Present
Jerry King brings with him 20 years of Christian Radio experience, having hosted morning shows, family shows and more. It was always a ministry, never a profession, so his business background is quite different. From being an Operations Manager for a heavy highway construction company, a business owner of an RV dealership and repair business and even a body shop manager of a Freightliner dealership to currently working as an associate and coordinator in training for Aflac, his business experience has helped him to work with people in developing their own careers.
Jerry has always loved ministry work and, even today, is a guest speaker at multiple events, offers pulpit supply when a pastor is out, works with the Prayer for Prisoners International ministry as a speaker and emcee for their annual fundraiser banquets, leads Bible studies, has a weekly prayer group meeting in his home and much more. He is also an ordained Christian Pastor with the Christian Prayer Center (a non-denominational organization) and will be performing his first wedding this spring.
Jerry has been married to Karen for 37 years, has 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren (so far).

Nate Sabin (Advisor) 2008 to 2011
This Twin Cities producer and musician has a clear heart to serve and worship Christ. Best known perhaps for producing Sarah Groves ground breaking CD, Nate’s deep heart and discerning prophet’s heart is the reason he was asked to serve with MtM.
Eric Copeland (Advisor) 2008 to 2009
This producer and arts mentor sees it as his business to challenge the status quo of the music business. Fostering genuine artists, his goal is not the biggest and best by only numerical standards, his is about the quality – the heart. With a strong presence in the inspirational Christian music world this Nashville insider offers great input and advice for those who need it.
Nathan Groninger (Vice President) 2004 to 2009
Nathan is not only Stephanie’s faithful and supportive husband, but also shares Stephanie’s longing to provide for struggling ministries and to perpetuate the resources God brings.

Mike Rueffert (Advisor) 2006 to 2009

Rick Harlow (Advisor) 2007 to 2008
A Recording Engineer for over 20 years and an engineer of all sorts Rick Harlow has been integral in developing the sound of Stephanie Pauline, having personally crafted the sonic textures, (the mix and master) of her CD Rush the Sea. He worked at Focus on the Family for five years and has a heart to honor God in all he does.
Barry Jass (Advisor) 2004 to 2006
Barry served as an invaluable part of the conception of this ministry. When More than Music, Inc. was called Stephanie Pauline Ministries, it was technically the auxiliary of Cornerstone Community Center (Oakdale, MN.) the church Barry founded and serves as Senior Pastor. He has a B.A. in Church History and Bible (Bethel) and a M.S. in Non Profit Management (Hamline University). He served as an Associate Pastor at Woodland Hills for 6 years, was involved in helping that church grow from 300 to 3000 before starting Cornerstone in 2000. He has five children and lives with His wife, Cheryl, in Shoreview, MN. He believes in the power of music and that it can be powerfully used by the Spirit of God to heal people. He says, “I believe God has placed His hand on Stephanie and I look forward to seeing how God will lead her and the ministry into the future.” Having served as a “consultant” for Stephanie in varying degrees for years, his being a part of the board seemed a natural extension of that.
