Pastor Steve grew up in Socastee (Horry county) where his mom and three younger sisters still live. He moved to Newberry in 1973 where he attended Lewis Memorial UMC. It was that church family that helped him grow spiritually and they blessed his decision to become a pastor.
Before Steve became a pastor he worked for a consultant forester for three years and sold life insurance for six years. He majored in elementary education at USC Spartanburg and he received his Master of Divinity degree from Candler School of Theology at Emory University in 1990.
Steve and Tricia were married on December 26, 1980 and they have three children and seven grandchildren. His hobbies include fishing, hiking, and camping.
