Faith journey

Steve first made a commitment to Christ aged about 11 while in the Boys Brigade. He wandered from the church in his late teens but found his way back at Narara about 32 years ago. Prayer is now a big part of decision-making, having seen how God has answered and guided over many years.

Existing church roles

Steve currently leads a Connect Group. He served NVBC on the Board during the construction of the new premises and is now ready to return, feeling that he is getting a nudge from God. He is planning to step down from leading the Connect Group, after being in the role for 3 years. Previously, he had leadership responsibility with Boys Brigade, which demonstrates his belief that serving is about “giving something back”.

Relevant experience

Steve has worked several decades in the building industry where he has obtained extensive experience of project management and dealing with a variety of people.


When it comes to management processes and committee work, Steve focuses on the goal. He gets along well with people. His communication is clear and direct.
