Steve was born and raised in Southern New Jersey under "Philadelphia influence," so he still roots for his Philly and Penn State sports teams (along with the local teams of course!) Other hobbies include hiking, biking, juggling, finding ways to serve his neighbors, and date nights with Cheri.
Steve gave his life to Christ as a 17-year-old. He is a passionate graduate of Liberty University (B.S. in Pastoral Ministries in 1983); and a graduate of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary (M.R.E. in Christian Education in 1986).
Steve was the Founder and Director of ABFResources.com for 12 years (2002-2013), a web-based ministry that allowed him to network with, consult, train, and equip the broader body of Christ nationally in the areas of midsize groups and small groups. He has spoken at a variety of Church Ministry conferences and churches on Midsize Groups, Small Groups, Leadership Reproduction, Equipping Ministry and Discipleship topics.
Steve and Cheri have three grown children - Jen, Katie and Tom -- and also are proud grandparents!
