Life with God is an adventure! I was perfectly content working as a farrier and thought that I would grow old in that trade. “God, I will gladly teach a Bible study, but don’t make me be a pastor.” It became clear that God had other plans.

Pastor Steve has been the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Fluvanna since the fellowship began in 2003. He came into ministry after working as a horseshoer (farrier) for 13 years.

Through the influence of CSN radio and the various Calvary pastors who have radio ministries, Pastor Steve began to recognize a calling in his own life.

After attending Calvary Chapel Charlottesville and assisting with their 2-3 year old Sunday school, Pastor Steve started Calvary Chapel Fluvanna. Steve lives in Fluvanna County with his wife, Helga, and two children, Jacob and Madeline.
