Growing up, Steve learned how to play piano & viola in the suburbs of Chicago. He continued pursuing his love of music in college by studying and graduating from Illinois State University with a degree in Music Therapy. Along the way, he picked up playing guitar and overcame his fear of singing in front of people. After working in an office setting for a while, he and his wife Katie felt the Lord leading them towards ministry. So they packed up their belongings, completed a Master of Divinity degree at Covenant Seminary, and fostered and adopted three children here in St. Louis. He loves watching movies, a strong cup of coffee, and a good laugh.
