Where Have We Been?
We have pastored in different capacities for over 25 years. As a young buck, before pastoring, I was with Young Life as an Area Director in NC. We were youth and associate pastors in Mississippi, and Holland, Michigan. We were Senior Pastors and visionaires in Inner City Tampa in a community voted the fifth worst place to raise your kids in the nation. We pastored there for almost 11 years with a large emphasis on children, youth, evangelism and outreach, and meeting the spirtual and physical needs of the community.
Steve helped to plant churches in Detroit, Chicago, and Grand Rapids inner city as well as part of a church planting task force. Lennette’s anointing is with kids and the training of others to work with children and youth, helping them to discover what is deep within them. A lot of her emphasis is around the creative and performing arts.
While living in the Charlotte area we both did Para-church ministries for a season. I worked for Stop Hunger Now, engaging up to 1000 Volunteers a week in feeding children in third world countries totaling up to 4 million a year. Lennette did city-wide Children’s and youth ministry training up kids on how to minister, worship, study the Word, and discover their God given gifts in the different art forms. She also did Art summer camps for 2 to 3 weeks each summer.
