Steve is a native of Rome, Georgia where he attended Shorter College, served as their campus missionary with Youth for Christ, and completed his BA in Communications. During this time, Steve met and married Sherry Chambers (an Atlanta native and graduate of Belhaven University). They then moved to Jackson to continue their ministry with Youth for Christ.

Later, Steve earned an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from Reformed Theological Seminary. This additional degree created more ways to work with teens and their families as a therapist and also as a secondary drug and alcohol treatment provider.

In 1997, Steve joined the ministry staff of Trinity Presbyterian Church PCA as the Director of Outreach & Missions. Since 2004, Steve has worked on staff at Redeemer Church as the Assistant to the Pastor and serves in various roles primarily with our diaconal ministries, mercy ministries, missions ministries, pastoral care ministry, and new ministry start-ups.

In addition to his responsibilities at Redeemer, Steve serves as an adjunct faculty member at Belhaven University where he teaches Youth Ministry, Teaching Children the Bible, and New Testament Survey classes.

Steve enjoys life with Sherry, being a parent and grandparent, live music concerts, travel – domestic and international, and other sundry adventures.
