Steve was born and raised in Austria, where his parents served as missionaries. Before joining CIU’s undergraduate faculty in 2001, he studied literature and art at Taylor University and Indiana University in the Midwest, and taught third culture kids at Black Forest Academy in Germany. Steve enjoys teaching, reading old books, helping to lead student tours to Europe, playing soccer, and spending family time with his wife and best friend Sara and their three children Abigail, Jacob, and David. Steve’s passion for his students is that they might grow into maturity in Christ—in every area of life (Col. 1:28-29).

Steve was born and reared in Columbia, S.C. He graduated from CIU and moved to North Carolina to teach Bible in a public school. He also taught Bible in public schools in Liberia, West Africa, where he served as a missionary with SIM. He met his wife in Liberia, and his first child was born there.
