Heserved as a minister of the Southwest Central Church of Christ in Houston for 37 years before semi-retirement. As a minister, Steve has written and taught on many subjects (some of which he wishes he could now retract). He has authored one book Deacons: Male and Female and contributed to the Encyclopedia of the Stone Campbell Movement (Eerdmans). Some of his teaching notes on The Lord's Supper are on the church web site. His workbook, My Love List, assists families in planning end-of-life issues and communicating them to their heirs.

In his spare time, Steve is a railfan and model railroader. He became Master Model Railroader 389 of the NMRA at the end of 2006. You can view the Santa Fe Historical and Modeling Society site, of which he is webmaster. The society honored him with an Honorary Life Membership in 2015. Would you like to see his model railroad layouts? Most of his rail stuff is on the ATSF society web site.
