Steve Parker

I believe in the power of the Good News of Jesus Christ to change lives. My Journey with Jesus has taken me from the waters of baptism in Savannah, Georgia, to Atlanta Christian College, and to ministries in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, South Carolina and Georgia.

His love has been multiplied in my life by my wife of 34 years, our children, our grandchildren and all the brothers and sisters in Christ we have known.

Through every valley and mountain top experience I’ve learned that God can and will use a surrendered life to show His love to the world.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 NLT
