Steve is still being culturally indoctrinated to the ways of the north. He and his wife, Heather, and their three kids, Hailey, Brenden, and Logan moved here from Austin, Texas, in the fall of 2014. Steve studied Religious Education at Dallas Baptist University, and continued on to earn a Masters in Church History.

Before coming to Crossing, Steve served at churches in Austin and Dallas, in discipleship and small group ministry. His desire is to see the church–and families–equipped and encouraged to make an impact right where they are. His free time is split between drinking coffee, reading, writing, and watching the Dallas Stars, Mavericks, or Cowboys.

He sporadically blogs at, and sometimes contributes to Faithwire.
