Hi, I'm Steve, and I'm privileged, along with my wife, Mary and together with Mitch and Betty Lea, to lead the Stephen Ministry program at GPBC. Stephen Ministers provide one-to-one Christian care as they journey with people through challenging times in life.
I am so thankful for the grace and love of Jesus in my life and desire to use my gifts of encouragement and leadership to assist those who need a little help remembering that Jesus is right there with them.
My wife and I are blessed with three adult children and three grandchildren. I worked many years with Portland Fire and Rescue. Now I work part-time helping people get ready for the disasters we hope we never have! I love playing with my grandchildren and doing just about anything outdoors including walking, hiking, traveling, and sports.
(Could you benefit from the confidential, one-to-one care and support of a Stephen Minister? Then please email us at
