Steve grew up in Poughkeepsie before moving to New Mexico to work for AOL. He later moved to Texas where he met his wife Angel. They then moved back to NY to take care of his mom. Steve and Angel joined Cornerstone Fellowship because they loved the worship and felt the Holy Spirit as they worshiped. As a seeker of the truth Steve found the sermons to be a perfect fit so they made Cornerstone Fellowship their new home.
