Steve joined the Kingsland team in June 2016. As the Teaching & Training Pastor, he teaches regularly through the church in a variety of formats and works with the Discipleship Pastor to equip and develop leaders at Kingsland who are empowered to use their gifting to teach the Bible in life-changing ways.
In addition to serving at Kingsland, Steve is also a professor at Houston Baptist University where he serves as chair of the Department of Classics & Biblical Languages. Steve earned a BA in Greek and Latin from Baylor University, an MA in Greek, Latin, and Classical Studies from Bryn Mawr College, and a PhD in Classics from the University of Texas at Austin.
Steve and his wife Tamber have 5 children: Bethany, Rachel, Hannah, Madelyn and Asa. When not reading, studying, or teaching, Steve enjoys taking road-trips with his family, watching baseball or football (whichever is in season), drinking ice cold Dr. Pepper, and showing off his parallel-parking skills.
