Steve has an enthusiasm for mentoring and making disciples of Christ among young adults and enjoys teaching and small group ministry. His college years (1977-81) included time in fellowship with a ministry group on the SUNY Brockport campus, which influenced a calling to teaching and mentoring with young adults in his church.
Returning to SUNY Brockport in 2002 as a second-degree student, Steve began volunteering with the Brockport Campus Ambassadors (now Campus One80) group. He taught Bible studies, presented at club meetings, and counseled/mentored students. As his full-time employment came to an end, he has been drawn to ministry with young adults in general and to the Brockport campus in particular.
In addition to his teaching and campus ministry, Steve has been an elder at his local church for over 35 years. He has been married 47 years to Linda (aka the Cookie Lady), and they have four children and 18 grandchildren.
Steve has a B.S. in Chemistry and a second B.S. in Computer Science, both from SUNY Brockport. He is currently enrolled in the Lifelong Learning program.
