Pastor Steve's Bio
My wife, Claudia, and I were both born and grew up in Spokane. Last year (2021) we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary! We have four children and eight grandchildren, spread out from New York City to Flagstaff, Eugene, and Portland. Claudia is a retired elementary school teacher. Following seminary in St. Paul, I served congregations in Minnesota, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Portland before serving 24 years at Emmaus Lutheran in Eugene from which I retired in 2015. We now live in the Welches area at the base of Mt. Hood.
