Pastor Steve was converted in his twenties and attended Woodlyn Baptist Church for the first time in the summer of ’75. Soon after, a church member invited him to a Young Adult Retreat in February ’76. He went half-willingly, but God’s Word had a powerful effect and he was never the same!
Before conversion, he believed the Bible to be obsolete and mostly myth. So with faith in Christ and His Word, he applied to the Reformed Episcopal Seminary to study the truth of the Bible. The church called him to serve as assistant pastor in ‘79 and pastor in ‘82.
Over many years of ministry one over-arching desire has grown in Pastor Steve’s heart – that Woodlyn would become a display of God’s glory in the world and to the world. For Pastor Steve’s part, this means teaching and preaching God’s Word to equip God’s people to help each other mature in Christ-likeness. To become like Christ in the world, is to make Christ known to the world. One body, many members, working together with Him.
