Ministry Focus: Steve is a trained theological educator who teaches part-time at Horizon College & Seminary, one of our PAOC Bible colleges, in Saskatoon, as well as Redeemer University in his hometown of Hamilton. He longs to use his gift of teaching and academic study to serve the church, seeing God's people grow in their knowledge of God and church leaders equipped to equip their people. Steve is excited about teaching at our partner institutions in Africa, helping to shape a new generation of African leaders with life-giving theology.
Ministry History: Feeling called as a teenager to ministry, during his undergraduate studies in theology Steve discerned that his gifts were specifically in the area of teaching and academics. Following this, he pursued a PhD in theology, which he earned from the University of Durham in the UK in 2015. Steve has always been passionate about using his gifts of study and teaching to serve God's mission, and is thankful to teach students from various backgrounds and churches in Ontario and Saskatchewan. He has experience teaching a range of courses in theology, ethics, church history, and New Testament, and looks forward to adapting these for the African context. Steve has always desired to be open to wherever God would use him; today, he is thankful and excited that "wherever" includes Africa!
