Steve has been a pastor since 1981 and the Lead Pastor at Redeemer's since January 1990. Though he has earned a Bachelor of Arts from Wheaton College, a Master of Theology from Dallas Seminary, and a Doctorate in Ministry from Western Seminary, Steve will correct you if you call him anything but "Steve." He believes he has one of the best jobs in the world, and would rather be teaching the Bible than doing nearly anything else. One of the passions of Steve's life is to help others find and follow Jesus.
