Steve grew up in the St. Louis area and attended the Emmaus Bible Chapel as well Masokobi Bible Camp (now Dayspring) where he trusted Christ at age eight. He went on to Kansas City, receiving his medical degree from the University of Missouri-KC and has now resided there for the past 30 years. He has the privilege to serve as an elder at the Bible Chapel of Shawnee, travel in limited intenerant ministry (both in the states and abroad), and the privilege to serve on several boards in our Christian circles. He has been given grace to practice medicine part-time. However, his greatest love is his wife, Janet, of nearly 26 years and their nine children who range from 24 (married) down to 9 months. Their life call: "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" (Josh. 24:15).
