Pastor Steve began telling stories and recreating dramatic events as a teenager in children's ministry. He tackled the singular challenge of holding a child's attention long enough to teach a principle and his strategy was to reach into his creativity for anything and everything he could use to dazzle his young crowd, and he certainly learned how to captivate an audience. His gift soon created opportunity, and by eighteen years old, Pastor Steve was in demand as an itinerant speaker and evangelist. He has been developing the "Story Time" style of communication in Family Christian Center services ever since.
