Steve Rowland

Pastor, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Steve and his family have been serving families through full time ministry for nearly 20 years.  In 2014, their family moved to Pleasant Hill and began their ministry locally within Rising Sun and instantly became very involved with as many community and school activities as their schedule could handle.  They would tell you they are, “two worlds colliding as one” and this passion is expressed with how they minister together as a family.  They are extremely proud of all four of their children and as a family share a wide variety of interests, especially being outdoors, hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, all kinds of sports, enjoying music, and reading a wide array of books.  They especially enjoy spending time together as a family, but they ultimately desire to be reflection of the Lord as individuals and as a whole so the world might see a glimpse of who God really is.
