About Steve

Thanks for stopping by.  If you’re like me when I visit a blog I like to check out the author page.  You know, try to figure out what this guy or girl’s story is.  I find the story of people’s lives fascinating.  Here are a few highlights from my story thus far:

…I’m a 50 year old father of three and husband of one.  I became a Christian  when I was 9 years old during the tail end of the Jesus Movement and have been trying to figure out how
this thing called “church” is supposed to work ever since.

  • My life in ministry started in 1989 when I took the money I had saved to move to Los Angeles and become an actor, and used it instead to do a Discipleship Training School with Youth With A Mission in Australia.

  • I have made over 200 trips into China delivering Bibles and supporting Christians there

  • I’ve  planted and pastored churches in both the U.S. and Hong Kong

  • I have a B.A. in English and Ancient History from the University of South Africa, a Master of Public Administration from the University of Colorado, and a PGCE (Education) from the University of Sunderland

  • In 2004 I was a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives 2nd Colorado District.  Won the nomination…lost the election.

  • In summer 2012 I fulfilled a dream by completing the Wainwright Coast to Coast hike in England with my 14 year old son Gabriel.  2 weeks of father / son time any father could only hope and wish for.  We walked 14 days straight  over 200 miles through some of the most beautiful country God ever creatIMG_2014ed.

  • In spring of 2015 I followed up the Coast to Coast walk by embarking on the 800 km (500 mile) Camino de Santiago in northern Spain.  My son and I walked the ancient Way of St. James from the French border to the cathedral in Santiago.

  • Have been in love with my wife Tammy pretty much since I first laid eyes on her 26 years ago

  • When I’m not working I’m usually watching a film, making a film, reading, or…if time allows, am hiking! (And if time doesn’t allow, I’m either watching the Detroit Tigers or Colorado Rockies play baseball.

Peace,

Steve
