Director of Music Ministries
Bio: Steve and his wife, Carol, are natives of California, where Steve received his Bachelor of Music Education from the Conservatory of Music—University of the Pacific, and Master of Music (Church Music) from Biola University/Talbot Theological Seminary. Carol has Bachelor and Master degrees in Elementary Education from United States International University. They have three sons: Nathan (wife Sarah, daughters Nell and Marie) who is Music Director and Organist of Park Street Church in Boston, Jared who is moving to Greenwood with them, and Andrew (wife Hannah) who is a music teacher in Boston. Steve has been music minister in Baptist, Grace Brethren, and Presbyterian Churches, guest conductor of the Sacred Song Service at Chautauqua Institution, and conductor/cantor of the Erie Bach Vespers. Because of the influence of music on Steve’s own faith, two priorities of music ministry form his passion: discipleship through Music Ministry (learning and internalizing scripture and a Christian world view), and Worship—responding to the acts and character of God with enthusiastic singing and other worship responses.
