For eleven years, Steven directed an African refugee project, traveling regularly to three massive Congolese refugee camps located in Western Tanzania. In this project, over 2800 refugee pastors and church leaders were trained, equipped, and mentored in order to reach these camps with the Gospel and to disciple the tens of thousands of new believers within the refugee camps.
Steven started as a musician in the “Jesus Movement” of Southern California in the 1970’s. A former pastor and church planter for over 20 years, Steven is a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary and earned his Doctorate in Missiology / Cultural Anthropology from New Geneva Theological Seminary.
