Steve has recently joined the pastoral staff of Saving Grace, serving as the Pastor of Adult Ministries along with overseeing the Missions Ministry. For the past 10 years, Steve served as a missionary to China, ministering to China’s underground house church network with his wife Katie (a Chinese national). Focusing on equipping nationals to reach and shepherd nationals, Steve and Katie were blessed to be used by the Lord to strengthen house church leaders in expository preaching, church governance, and biblical counseling. By God’s grace, Steve was saved later in life and led to pursue formal training at Capital Bible Seminary in Lanham, MD where he completed his ThM concentrating in Old Testament studies. When not pursuing his passion for studying and teaching God’s Word, and shepherding God’s people, Steve enjoys reading, exercising, and spending time outdoors in God’s creation.
