Steve accepted Jesus as his Lord and savior in 1988 and later received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. Steve served faithfully in his home church, on the media ministry, Evangelism team, prison ministry, convalescent care, and marriage ministry, and as a trustee for several years.

Steve was promoted and ordained as an Elder, then elevated and ordained as a Bishop.

Steve founded New Destiny Christian Church in 2007 with a handful of people inside their homes. His love for God, his love to serve God’s people, and his deep desire to win souls for Jesus is the passion behind all he does for the Lord.

Steve is under the Spiritual covering of Dr. R.A. Vernon, Pastor of the Word Church in Cleveland, Ohio.

Steve’s call is to build relationships in the Body of Christ across all denomination lines. Prayer, his unique preaching style, the cloak of humility he wears, and the boldness to preach the Word without compromise are why many lives are being transformed, delivered from strongholds, and discovering their Destiny in God.
