Steve followed his father's footsteps into the ministry and joined the staff of Faith in 2000 while completing his master's in divinity at The Master's Seminary. He began as Assistant Director of Student Ministries, then Interim Teaching Pastor, and finally, in 2006, he was elected to be Senior Pastor. He is a graduate of Cedarville University in Ohio, where he earned bachelor's degrees in business management and pre-seminary studies.
Jeff Howell is the Director of Church Administration.
Jeff grew up on the East Coast and was saved after college in 1998. In 2000, Jeff & Lori were married and shortly thereafter, the Lord put a burden on their hearts to be somehow involved in Christian ministry. In July 2002, The Lord paved the road for them to come to CA so that Jeff could attend The Master's Seminary. Jeff & Lori joined Faith Community Church in early 2003 and have grown in love for the people and ministry here ever since. Jeff graduated with his Masters of Divinity from TMS in 2006 and joined Church Staff in November 2007 as our Office Manager. In November 2008, Jeff transitioned into the role of Director of Administration (later expanded to Church Administration) and also provides oversight to our Sunday morning adult Growth Groups discipleship ministry and our Life Groups ministry.
