"I have been a Christian since I was a boy of 9 years. I started preaching at 17 years old. I was asked to pastor a church at 21. In 1990 I graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky. Since then I have pastored several churches. Also God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Cynthia, and my quiver is full of 7 delightful children. they have been a great source of joy and blessing.
During my time of ministry I have had many difficult and heartrending experiences in the organized local church. After many years of much prayer, study of God's Word, and reflection, God has caused me to come to many startling and amazing conclusions about the organized churches of America. I believe the Lord wants me to share my insights and grievances with other sincere Christians who truly desire Christ in a Biblical way.
I believe the organized church can be a hindrance to fully following Christ. Do not be too quick to judge me as a radical fanatic. I did not come to this evaluation in haste or presumptuously. It has taken many, many years of thoughtful prayer to reach my conclusion, one I had never wanted to reach, but one which the Holy Spirit has directed me to, which the Scripture has also confirmed. (You can read other articles about the modern church at Pastor Steve's web site) On these pages are my discussion and evaluation. Read it thoughtfully and prayerfully. Your relationship with God may depend on whether you understand it or not."
