Steve McCracken

Lead Pastor

   “You don’t have to dress up or straighten up...just show up” is one of the favorite ways Pastor Steve invites people to the church he’s pastored since 1993. He and his college sweetheart-wife Debbie have been blessed with three adult children (now in college and early careers) in their 35 year marriage. Some of Steve’s favorite things include camping, coffee and indulging on dark-chocolate espresso beans! Steve’s been described as “passionate and personal” in his approach to ministry! He frequently prayers and invites others to pray one of the most “dangerous prayers” you can pray: “Lord, make me more like you and less like me!” He’s committed to teaching God’s timeless truth’s in a relevant and gracious way in the tradition of 2 Timothy 4:1-5! Steve holds degrees from Talbot Seminary and Fuller Theological Seminary in Christian Education and Theology respectively.
