Steve was born and raised in Northern Indiana, but after 33 years of grey skies and icy windshields, he finally wised up and moved to sunny Florida, where I served a church in Clearwater before coming to St. James in 2008. He loves preaching and teaching about this “Jesus way of life,” and encouraging people along the journey. What does a “typical” pastor do for fun? No idea. But Steve loves all forms of racing. Anything that has to do with engines and speed! He also love reading and studying. When He gets breaks with his family, Steve loves traveling around the country with his incredible wife, Karen, and their four wonderful children. Steve's mission in life is to preach Jesus, walk with integrity, and love the people God sends his way...and to enjoy the journey as much as possible.
