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.

  • 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

  • If My People Pray

    Contributed on Sep 19, 2015

    We're going to look at an old passage of scripture today, we are going to focus on one verse, one phrase that God spoke and which we today consider one of the deepest revelations about the power and pattern of prayer.

  • In The Beginning...

    Contributed on Sep 19, 2015

    John begins his gospel by reminding his readers that indeed there WAS a beginning. Not 'once upon a time…' THE beginning.

    In The Beginning The Gospel of John Series – Part 1 Today we begin a new series of messages. I like series for several reasons; first it keeps us all on a track so we know where we're going and where we've been, secondly we can all be in prayer about what God is trying to show more

  • A Choice To Make

    based on 4 ratings

    I was thinking about whether there is just 'one thing' that is most needed in life. So I looked up that phrase…one thing. Here’s what I read in the Gospel of Luke

    A choice to make… Jan. 2, 2011 Intro: - how would you rate your 2010? Good year? Bad year? Physically or spiritually? Do you feel closer to God or does it feel like He’s further away? - do you think you made good choices in 2010? - we’ve just had a busy season, more
