Steve was raised in a nomadic family. Born in Ottawa and raised in a variety of locations including London, and multiple villages in the North West Territories, he graduated high school in Terrace, BC. He attended Bible College near Vancouver, finished his degree in Edmonton, and worked summers in Grande Prairie where he met his wife Kristy who was born and raised in Grande Prairie.
Steve and Kristy spent their first 6 years of marriage pastoring youth and young adults at a church in Medicine Hat then moved back to Grande Prairie in time for the birth of their first child in 2007. They now have 4 children (3 boys and 1 girl) and Steve enjoys spending his free time watching his children’s hockey, swimming, piano and gymnastics efforts.
Grande Prairie is Steve’s home, something he was not able to declare about any place until he was 30 years old. After 10 years in the trucking industry, the opportunity to work at Oliver’s presented itself and Steve made the transition. He is happy to be once again connecting, serving, helping and working with people on a regular basis.
