Steve’s church has worked with YouthWorks in the past and they have always had great experiences with it. Growing up he enjoyed youth mission work as a teenager and had a desire to give back that experience to others.
In his free time Steve enjoys traveling, paddle boarding, boating, biking, cooking and socializing with family and friends. I have been working with my church in doing start-up multi-site locations which has been a challenging, yet fulfilling experience. Having come from years in technology sales, it is rewarding to be a part of a faith based organization that is providing a missions experience to the teen generation.
