He resides in Lexington, MA with his wife Ruth and is the proud father of two children, Nathan and Rebekah. Steve writes, “My wife and I enjoy hunting for turn of the (19th) Century oak antique furniture We love to travel, and we delight in our children, Nate and Bekah, who are our pride and joy. We also enjoy reflecting on the richness of ministry life together. I’m a collector of memories, with special rocks, shells, and various mementos, joined by thousands of photographs, which remind me of important people and places that have marked our journey thus far.  My soul comes alive singing the great hymns of the church and enjoying the beauty of God’s creation. My favorite walk is on the beach at low tide between Sesuit Harbor and the Brewster flats on Cape Cod (MA)…it’s beautiful year round! I’m in awe of God for fulfilling the dream for LTI that he birthed in my heart one year before we started this ministry. Since our inception in 2003, the team God has assembled is phenomenal and the ministry has grown beyond all my greatest hopes and expectations. But, most of all, the transformational impact on the leaders and teams we serve together makes every long day incredibly meaningful and satisfying.
