About Us


STEM is a collaboration of seven local South Tampa Churches. Members from Bayshore Baptist Church, Christ the King Catholic Church, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Hyde Park Presbyterian Church, Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church, Palma Ceia Methodist Church, St. Mary's Episcopal Church and St. John's Episcopal Church have joined together in the development of Faith Café. Metropolitan Ministries has graciously offered to supply meals for our guests.

Faith Café

The Faith Café is a program that was developed to feed our neighbors in need. The South Tampa Ecumenical Ministries (STEM) have joined forces with Metropolitan Ministries in an effort to feed those who may be homeless, in financial straits, or otherwise in need of a hot meal.
