Steve has been a Christian for about 24 years, coming to saving faith while an undergraduate at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Since that time, he has worked as a volunteer in student ministries with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, as a pastor in South Korea and in his native Newfoundland, and now as an elder and ministry assistant at Calvary. He holds degrees in Philosophy (BA), Law (LLB) and ministry (M.Div), and is presently researching Secularization theory as part of a Master’s degree in Religious Studies at Memorial University. Convinced of the need for professionals to learn how to live their professional lives to the Glory of God, he has strong interests in the intersection of ethics and work, as well as a desire to help people work through their relationship with Jesus Christ as it applies to every facet of their lives.
