Steve’s earliest experience with Christian Service Brigade began in the late 1960’s as a Brigadier in Battalion 555 at Forcey Memorial Church in MD. During his time in Battalion 555, he attended Camp Hemlock in West Virginia, and was also on staff for two summers before joining the U.S. Army, serving for almost twenty-two years before retiring in 1997.
After retiring from the Army, Steve joined CSB as a regional director for the southeast United States covering the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida. Shortly after joining CSB in 1997, Steve was selected to be the National Field Director, supervising the U.S. field staff and as CSB’s liaison with the numerous CSB camps. He traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada speaking at father-son events, leadership training seminars and leading campfire talks at several camps each summer. He also served as the interim President for CSB during the transition from Dave Hall to Don Patterson. Steve left the CSB leadership team in 2003 to enter the pastorate.
Steve has a deep commitment to evangelism and discipleship. This commitment started while teaching Bible clubs in the housing projects of Washington DC as a teenager, serving alongside his then girlfriend Priscilla. They eventually married and have been serving together for over forty-three years. They have three adult sons, two of whom served in the U.S. Army. In addition, they have one daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. Since leaving CSB staff, Steve has served as an associate or senior pastor for several churches in the Rock Hill, SC area. His pastoral emphasis is on restoration and revitalization of churches. He has also served as a Christian school administrator. He is currently serving as a pastor in York, SC.
