Director of Music Ministries
Steven and his family moved to the Signal Mountain area in 2011 when he began serving as Signal Pres’ Director of Music Ministries. He has served churches in Texas and Colorado and has experienced a variety of ministry contexts including established churches, church plants, and foreign missions. As an educator, he has served students both at the preparatory and collegiate levels. His educational background includes degrees in church music from Johnson University (Knoxville, TN) and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (Fort Worth, TX). Just before moving to Signal Mountain, Steven completed doctoral course work at the University of Northern Colorado where he studied choral conducting.
Steven has a deep appreciation for how music, with all its variety of stylistic approaches, can facilitate worship and be used as a tool to minister to God, his people, and the world. He finds joy both in directing a choir in a complex anthem as well as leading others in worship from the piano with a simple worship song.
Steven and his wife, Kathy, have two adult children and a stinky little dog named Jack. Their son, Jonathan, is an officer in the US Navy and their daughter, Elizabeth, lives and works in the Chattanooga area. Providing English language instruction, Kathy enjoys working with internationals.
