About Steven
  • Education: High school grad, 1987. Spent 1 year in YWAM in the DTS & SOE programs in 1988/89.
  • Experience: Served in many lay-minsitries from kids clubs, AWANA, VBS, various committees, board member, board chair, and worship leader for 15 years.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I am a simple man preaching simple sermons with the simple idea of leading people to Christ. If God can use me, God can use anyone. I am thankful for those who have influenced my life through their messages. Most are close to home, but I have been grateful to those who contibute here on this website for sharing their love of sharing the gospel.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: A farmer is walking around his property when he hears a banging sound around the side of the barn. He goes over to check it out. Coming around the corner he sees a full-grown goat running head first into the side of the barn, lowering his head as if dazed, then backing up and doing again; over, and over, and over. Thinking that the old goat had hit his head a little too hard, the farmer goes over to collect the goat and return him to his pen. But on getting closer to the barn he notices that each time the goat hits the wall, a little feed is falling through the cracks of the barn, and he was bending down to eat. The old goat wasn’t so dumb after all! We may feel we’re butting our heads against a wall, but if we’re getting just a little result each time, it’s worth it!
  • Family: Married to my beautiful wife, Stephanie, for 30 years. We are blessed with 3 great kids
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: All sermons should lead to the Gospel message of Christ. Bring people to Jesus, every time.
  • Books that have had an impact: Bible, Purpose Driven Life (Rick Warren), Come Thirsty (Max Lucado), The Disciple Making Pastor (Bill Hull), Case For Christ series (Lee Strobel), How Full is Your Bucket? (Rath/Clifton), The Faith (Charles Colson)
  • Hobbies: Salt and fresh-water fishing, hiking in the woods, being anywhere by the water, photography
  • What I want on my tombstone: No regrets...

    • As we progress through the Gospel of Luke and look into the things that he initially shared with Theophilus and now has been shared with millions of believers and seekers of Jesus, I want to start today’s message with a reminder of WHY Luke put all this into a letter, a rather long letter. • more

    A Voice in the Wilderness January 26th 2020 Luke 3:1-20 • In general, do people like to be told that what they are doing is wrong? • Wrong according to whom? Who determines right and wrong? Who says one’s ways are the right ways and another’s are bad? • How do they respond? Good, bad, more

  • Healing Vs. Wellness

    Contributed on Sep 1, 2021

    There is a difference between being healed, and being made 'well' Both are important, one is vital

    • Would you rather be ‘healed’ or made ‘well’? • That is perhaps a deeper question than it appears on the surface. • Healed seems so complete whereas being well, is, well, not complete • Healing can simply be temporary, as we can always be injured again, but being well is more of a condition of more

  • Light Has Come

    Contributed on Sep 23, 2015

    Light has come into the world and it gives light to everyone. We can all see truth – we see it in God's Word, if we choose to look at it, actually read it, study it, ask God to speak to us through it, ask Him to show us what is true, what is right...

    Light Has Come The Gospel of John Series – Part 2 September 20, 2015 Last week I shared about the beginning of all things; how there was the Word and that Word was Jesus, eternally existing and creating all that has ever been made. We saw how He is life, and that life is the more
