Steve was born and raised in Colorado and came to Texas in 1995 after being called to ministry. God honed his calling while attending East Texas Baptist University and serving churches in Marshall, Texas. While in Marshall, he married the love of his life and Louisiana girl, Shannon Thibodeaux. Their first daughter, Hannah, was born in Marshall. In 2004 he received his Masters’s degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. During their time in Fort Worth, his family grew with the birth of two children. Annemarie, who passed away shortly after she was born, and later their first son, Marshall. After graduating, they moved to serve a church in Fayetteville, Arkansas, serving there for 11 years. Their fourth child, Wesley, was born. God called them back to Texas in 2015 to begin serving as Youth Pastor here at Colonial Hills Baptist Church. Since 1995, in his marriage and ministry, this one thing HE KNOWS is true: God’s love is an active and present love, and He brings us through every moment, the good and hard, all for His glory!
