Community & Care Pastor
Steve joined the Center Pointe staff in November of 2007, having graduated from Milligan in 1990 with a Bachelor¹s Degree in Bible, and completing coursework toward a Master's Degree in Pastoral Leadership from Cincinnati Christian University. He and his wife Jill met while attending Milligan College, and were married in 1991. They are the proud parents of Caleb, who is forging a path in coaching women’s college basketball, and Kate, who is married to Trevor and working in the field of speech & language pathology.
After a 17-year youth ministry at Fern Creek Christian Church in Louisville, KY, Steve came to Center Pointe, in 2007, as our Student Pastor. In the summer of 2010, he transitioned into the role of Executive Pastor, and led the Center Pointe staff team for 6 years. In 2016, Steve’s leadership experience was focused into the new role of Mission Pastor, in order to develop and align our mission-focused ministries. After laying the foundation of that ministry, he returned to a strategic leadership role in 2017, as the Executive Pastor of Adult Ministries. In early 2020, Steve transitioned into the role of Community & Care Pastor to lead the Groups & Equipping ministry efforts and develop a comprehensive pastoral care strategy.
Steve continues to pursue his passion for strategic development and coaching leaders for Kingdom growth. Along with his work at Center Pointe, Steve serves as a facilitator and coach with Intentional Churches, assisting other churches and ministry organizations with strategic and leadership development. In addition to being passionate about his family and the church, Steve has been known to get excited about his favorite sports team and a good movie.
