Pastor Steve, a kiwi born and bred, came to Christ as Lord and Saviour during early childhood, first became involved with the ministry of Calvary Chapel, when he attended Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa on a visit to the United States in 1986. This was the first of several visits, which ultimately saw Steve attend the School of Ministry at Costa Mesa from 1989 until 1991, before returning to New Zealand in 1995. In 2003, Steve started a home bible study, which today has grown into Calvary Chapel Hamilton.
As well as pastoring Calvary Chapel Hamilton, Steve is a full time Hill country farmer in the Waikato.
Steve is married to Julie and has 3 children.
