Pastor Steve and his wife Lenett have served faithfully for 20 years at Greenbrier Nazarene. Born and raised in Conway, AR, Steve felt the call into ministry at a young age. In the summer of 1997, he accepted the call from God, and officially started working as our Student and Associate Pastor in 1998. He served as the Associate Pastor until May 2011, when he was called upon to be the Senior Pastor at Greenbrier Nazarene.
Pastor Steve and Lenett have been married for 28 years and have two grown twin boys, Hayden and Hunter. In his free time Steve likes to be on a boat fishing for large mouth, or watching any kind of Razorback athletics.
