Pastor Steve's goal is to ignite and mobilize a generation of believers to rise up and take the name of Jesus Christ into their classrooms, their homes, and turn this world back to Christ and his favorite Bible verse is Joshua 1:9 which says, 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
