Pastor Steve

As a kid there were three things that Pastor Steve was known for… playing baseball, the drums and making trouble. He is still passionate about all three only now he is making trouble for darkness. Growing up in church as a “PK” (pastor’s kid), Pastor Steve has seen the good and the bad of the church. It is his heart to see real transformation both inside and outside of the four walls. It was while serving as Youth Pastor in 2004 that his father, Pastor Steve Sr., suddenly passed away and a year later Pastor Steve was ordained and set as lead pastor by ministers from all over Long Island. In 2011, Pastor Steve married Stephanie, who is not only the love of his life but also his true partner in the ministry. That year they also adopted Bleu, their Cocka-poo Lhasa-poo mix. In 2016, Pastor Steve and Steph gave birth to Elia, their first child and in 2019, they gave birth to little Steven. Pastor Steve is determined, with his family, to lead East Gate Church into a move of God that will impact their city, the nation and the world!
