About Steve
  • Experience: In 1986 my family and I began a full-time evangelistic endeavor that lasted for about 3 1/2 years. We were then elected as the pastor of HAC and I have pastored here since January of 1989.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I hope you can receive something from them that will bless you. My advice is the fish and leave the bones! You may not like it all, or even agree with it all, but if just one portion of it will bless would have been worth the effort.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: England in the middle of the 17th century was in turmoil. King Charles I was beheaded. Anglican churches were being closed; Presbyterians were being persecuted. In the midst of turmoil, Sir Robert Shirley built a church. The plaque on the church read: “In the year 1653, when all things throughout the land were demolished or profaned, Sir Robert Shirley built this church, whose singular praise is this: to have done the best of things in the worst of times.”
  • Family: My wife, Jacqueline, and I have been married for over 27 years. We have one son, Justin, that is 22 years old and a daughter-in-law named Sarah.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Both of my parents are deceaced. However, they were very supportive to me and I had the wonderful privilege to pastor both of my parents for about the last 10-12 years of their lives. It was during the closing hour of their lives that each of them requested me to preach their funeral. It was hard to do in its own right, but the lives they lived before me everyday made a hard task somewhat easier. These are precious memories for me today!
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is my greatest supporter...always has been!
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Keep on preaching even when you are facing some terrible storms in your life, whether they are personal or church problems...just keep feeding the sheep.
  • Hobbies: Restoring old cars and trucks.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: It was the worst of times to do the best of things in Jerusalem. The city had been destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar and his Babylonian army in 579 BC. By 586 BC the people were led into captivity. Those returning 70 years later found it difficult to rebuild. In fact, for almost 150 years after the initial damage, they had made only modest gains in rebuilding. Then God laid His hand on Nehemiah and the walls were built in 52 days. Nehemiah 6:15 So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days. KJV Tonight we have the opportunity to do the best of things in the worst of times. The foundations of the church are being attacked. I have several minister friends whose entire families are coming under the siege of the very gates of Hell.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Too many to tell! :)
  • What I want on my tombstone: He fought a good fight and kept the faith...

  • Dreamers Have Always Had A Way Of Shaking Up ...

    Contributed on Aug 20, 2003

    Dreamers have always had a way of shaking up their world. One of the most infamous illustrations of this would be a speech that was given on those steps in Washington, DC, when Martin Luther King Jr. stood and said… “I have a dream”… No matter what your personal position is this morning, if you more
