Steve and Sarah have self-published “Have Heart: Bridging the Gulf between Heaven and Earth”. This project is very personal because it deals with the events surrounding their 19-year-old son, Josiah’s, entrance into Heaven. An additional Bethany House book project, “Between Heaven and Earth” was released in March 2014.
Steve is known for his straight talk in dealing with various hot-topic cultural issues that many pastors avoid. He serves on the Executive and Pastoral Advisory Boards for Promise Keepers International, and the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast Board. Whether preaching or writing, in great joy or pain, Steve longs to be a proclaimer of the grace and hope that Jesus came to offer. Since June of 1987, he has been married to Sarah, the love of his life, and together, they have four beautiful children and four grandchildren.
