State Pastor
Steve was born and raised in the Ozarks.  He came to Christ at a Church of God Campmeeting in Mountain Grove, MO on his 14th birthday.  God surprisingly called him to ministry 9 months later and he started preaching at the age of 15.  Steve's bedrock belief that "a call to ministry is the call to prepare for ministry" (Dr. Gil Stafford) led him to a BA from Gulf-Coast Bible College, a Master's of Religious Education (MRE) and a Master of Divinity (Mdiv) from Anderson University School of Theology, and a PhD in Character Education (George Mason University).  

Steve served as a local youth pastor for 13 years and for 4 of those years was a founding member of the National Youth Ministry Team of the Church of God.

Steve and his family served as pioneer missionaries for the Church of God in East Africa founding Kima International School of Theology as a training school for the next generation of Christian leaders in Africa.

For 14 years the family lived in Indianapolis where Steve loved his role as Lead Pastor of the dynamic, church-planting, missional congregation, The Church At The Crossing (

Steve began as the Colorado State Pastor of the Church of God in March 2017 and is excited to partner together to:
PLANT new churches, 
MULTIPLY existing churches, and
MOBILIZE all churches for a united and greater mission!
