Pastor Steve is our interim pastor and is excited to be back “home” at First Pres to offer pastoral leadership during this time of transition.
Steve was a trial lawyer for 30 years—including 12 years at Ray, Quinney & Nebeker in Salt Lake and then almost 19 years at Microsoft Corp. in Washington state. He and his wife Alice are happy to be back in Utah and are drying out after 20 years in the wet, wonderful Pacific Northwest.
Steve became a pastor in 2016 and has served at Overlake Park Presbyterian Church in Bellevue, WA and as interim pastor at First Presbyterian of Ogden. Prior to that he was a Ruling Elder and Deacon in the PC(USA) and has served in a variety of ways. He was first ordained as an Elder here at First Pres Salt Lake back in the 80s!
Steve and Alice have two adult daughters, Annie and Gracie. They are very proud of them, so feel free to ask for details!
Steve is grateful to get to serve as a pastor at this stage in life. He says “God is so generous to us, his grace is overwhelming. My goal is to share some of that love and hope that God—the ultimate reality—gives to us and the meaning that gives our lives. The most important thing anyone can know is that Jesus is crazy about you! That changes everything.”
Steve would love to visit with you, don’t hesitate to reach out to him!
