Steve also serves as Senior Associate Pastor of Leadership Development at Elmbrook Church and regularly consults and leads seminars in this country and around the world with churches from a wide range of denominations helping to develop and establish local men's ministries and address leadership issues.
Steve has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee and a Masters of Divinity from Bethel Seminary. Steve and his wife, Colleen, have raised four children and recently became empty nesters. They are proud owners of Misha, a Newfoundlander expected to reach 150 lbs.
