After a long and successful career with Nordstrom, Steve retired early in 2015, so he could follow the Lord’s calling to serve in his home church as an associate pastor and be the dean for a start-up Bible Institute. A theme in his journey from lay church leadership to his most recent roles that continues with the Colson Fellows program is to develop future leaders for the kingdom of God who understand the times and know what to do.
After going through the Colson Fellows program in 2013, Steve became the Seattle regional director in 2015 and has been involved in coaching and mentoring regional and online directors. His current roles are leading training and technology with the Colson Fellows program and is the director for the Pacific Online, South Korea, and ADF International cohorts.
Steve and his wife are childhood sweethearts, having known each other since they were five years old, and are empty-nesters living in Snoqualmie, WA, 25 miles east of Seattle. They have two grown daughters that married great guys and have four grandkids.
