Pastor Steve joined the staff at New Philadelphia Nazarene in October of 2018 as the new youth pastor. He and his family moved to the East Ohio district after having served on the SWO district, and most recently on the SCO district. Stephen and his wife Katrina (she prefers to go by Kitty) have four children: Abby, Valencia, Cyrus, and Canaan.
Both Steve and Kitty are graduates of MVNU where Kitty played soccer and was part of their national championship team in 2003. Steve enjoys watching the Philadelphia Phillies, bowling, watching his kids play sports, and hanging out with friends. Katrina prefers soccer and running.
One of the things Steve enjoys the most is connecting with people. He believes that a truly impactful ministry always begins with the building of relationships…and through those relationships, the love of Jesus can be shared with others.
