Steven and his wife, Jenn, have four lovely children. Since high school, I’ve felt a calling in my life to serve in ministry. I have long been passionate about knowing and understanding God’s word to know Him better and share his truth with the body and the world around me. For many years, I have been convinced that God has called me to prepare for full-time pastoral ministry someday in my future. Today, I am actively pursuing studies to prepare for this possibility when and where the Lord leads. An Elders role in scripture includes shepherding the church (1 Peter 5:1-2). I am convinced that serving in this way will allow me to rise the gifts and desires the Lord has given me in the body now and better prepare me for wherever he may be leading my family and me in the future.
