I’m Steve.  I’m in Fresno, California, United States of America with my wife and kids.  The thing about me is that I believe in the God of the Bible, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ, the Messiah, offered his life as an atonement for sin.  With his resurrection, he declares victory over darkness and ushers in transformative spiritual rebirth!  What that seems to mean is that he came to redeem the whole world and reconcile it to himself.  As he redeems us, he invites us to participate in the ongoing work of redemption in the world.  I love that he’s given me a role as an ambassador of reconciliation, uniting me with my community in purpose for bringing about shalom in as many ways as I can.  I believe God is very interested and influential in how we relate to him, to ourselves, to our neighbors, to our environment, to the systems of the world, everything.  By his grace we get to enjoy supernatural love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

I’m super into science, especially green engineering and technology.  I love to hear about smart urban planning and social entrepreneurship.  Social justice issues get me really fired up.  But really my main thing is that I love being with and encouraging people and I love to live my life leaning forward with perseverance and high hopes.
