Steve is heading up Serge’s new Regional Networking Strategy in the Commonwealth
of Virginia. Having lived in Richmond for almost 40 years, he is excited to serve
Richmond and the Commonwealth by bringing gospel-centered discipleship and
renewal to broken people like himself, identifying potential missionaries who can bring
social good and spiritual renewal to those who need Jesus, and building relationships
with ministry partners who believe in what God is doing through Serge.
Steve brings to Serge a passion for seeing people live in the freedom and transforming
power of the gospel. He and his wife, Sarah were first introduced to a life of faith and
repentance through a Sonship group back in 1992. The healing they both experienced
through this band of pilgrims, with whom they still do life, changed the focus and
trajectory of their lives.
After earning a B.A. in Psychology from James Madison University and an M.Div. from
Gordon- Conwell Theological Seminary, Steve has experienced the highs and lows of a
life invested in discipleship, B2B sales, and non-profit development. During these
decades, he has served on the Session of a local church and has participated on
several short-term mission trips in partnership with Serge and his local church.
Steve enjoys sailing and running, exploring new places and new foods, reading and
music, dabbling in art and messing about in the kitchen but most especially spending
time with Sarah, his family, and friends. Steve and Sarah have two married daughters
and seven grandchildren.
