Steve and his wife Maureen have six children and two grandsons, who could win World Champion for their cuteness. Steve’s home flock is the delight of his heart, and hanging out with them and doing all things sports is what he enjoys in his free time.

His passion is to preach God’s Word in an accurate and applicable manner. He possesses a deep affection for the doctrines of grace, as well as learning how the gospel applies to every facet of life. He is committed to cultivating a cross-generational, family-friendly body of believers. He has shepherded our church family for over thirty years and is a 1986 graduate of Prairie Bible Institute.
