Steve is in the final phase of completing his Doctor of Misistry at Talbot School of Theology. He joined the faculty of SDCC in the spring of 1987 and has taught here since that time. That same year he planted a church, Grace Fellowship of San Diego, where he has been a Shepherd and teacher for the last 21 years.

Steve married Marguerite in April of 1981 and God has blessed them with four children. Jeremiah is 29 years old and just finished his Master’s degreee in English. Their identical twin boys, Andrew and Aaron are seniors at Christian High School and daughter Grace is in the sixth grade.

Steve became a Christian in 1973 and Jesus has changed his life. He considers himself a practitioner. He loves shepherding and encouraging the students to apply what they are learning in the classroom. Steve also has a passion for church history and integrates his knowledge of the subject into the classroom. He also has a love for discipleship and considers his job at SDCC an opportunity to mentor those who pass through our college so that they can impact the world for Christ.
