Some important things to know about Steve:
Much to his own surprise, he became a follower of Christ just before entering university and continues to be increasingly overwhelmed by the magnitude of God’s love for him and every person.
A life-changing experience traveling the world as an intern and researcher with Campus Crusade for Christ speaker and author Josh McDowell ‘infected’ him with the call to vocational ministry.
He is passionate about the local church and has first-hand leadership experience with two church plants, at the denominational level and as an elder in his current church. Steve received his Master of Divinity from Tyndale Seminary and is credentialed as a pastor with the Mennonite-Brethren.
He will be forever thankful for business training through the family business and at Wilfrid Laurier University (Honours Bachelor of Business Administration).
Participating in the Arrow Leadership Program (Canadian Class of 2001) was a profound experience and crystallized his focus for the main thing – the intentional and strategic development of healthy disciples.
He is an avid student of leadership – through the ups and downs of actually leading, on-going study and through the privilege of walking alongside Arrow leaders. His Doctor of Ministry with Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary focused on spiritual formation in Christian ministry leaders. He is also trained in the MBTI and 16PF assessment tools.
He is grateful for the amazing privilege of serving God through speaking/teaching, coaching leaders, creating resources and consulting. He contributes regularly to Arrow’s free e-resource “One Degree”, serves as an adjunct faculty at Wheaton College Graduate School, has taught at Tyndale Seminary in the Doctor of Ministry program and has contributed directly and indirectly to several books and writing projects.
Steve enjoys spending his free time with his young family, being near the water or a mountain, and running the hills (downhill is faster) near their home in Abbotsford, BC.
