Serving as a teaching Elder for more than 20 years, Pastor Steve always had a heart for church planting. In 2009, while serving as an elder at Calvary Memorial Church, Steve felt called to start a new church plant. After much thought and prayer, Steve became the pastor of Roanoke Valley Bible Church, and held the first service on November 1, 2009.
Through his pastoral responsibilities of shepherding, preaching, and teaching, Pastor Steve's main goal is to glorify God. Pastor Steve finds great joy in demonstrating the glory of Christ and the relevancy of the Bible today through Bible Study, exposition and teaching.
He also enjoys visiting and discipleship: "Ministering involves helping people through difficult times and difficult relationships," Pastor Steve says. "Shepherding people through difficulties is never easy. Sometimes people reject Biblical counsel and choose a path that leads to suffering—for them and for me. But many respond to counsel, and there are few joys as great as being used by God to help people continue in the Christian Life."
Steve's educational background includes Washington Bible College, Dallas Theological Seminary, and Capitol Bible Seminary. Pastor Steve's favorite pastime is spending time with his family—his wife, Vicki, and their three children, Jared, Rachel and Justin. Some of his hobbies include reading, music, chess, and hydroponic gardening.
