He served as the youth pastor of Grace Bible Church in Newfane, NY and then served as the pastor of First Baptist Church of Fort Edward, NY. For 22 years, he was the pastor of The Church at Spruce Creek in Kittery, ME (formerly Central Baptist Church of Portsmouth, NH). He was called to be pastor of Sturtevant Chapel in 2012.
He holds professional degrees from Cairn University (formerly Philadelphia Biblical University) and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He was ordained in 1979.
Steve and his wife, Barb, have been married for more than 40 years and have three children and three grandchildren. He enjoys running, walking, laughing with friends, watching murder mysteries, and playing with his Scottish Terrier, Piper.
