Christ follower. Jesus asked us to “Follow Me – “ 23 times in the bible. So then what does it me to be a Christ follower? Many say they are Christians but what about Christ followers? Steve and his wife Leigh ask this question in their own lives and then encourage others to consider the same question. Steve has served in ministry as a volunteer / lay person for over 16 years. During that time he has been taught from God about doing more than “playing the church game” but to strive to be real in his walk with God. This path has lead to this point with FCA Endurance. For many years feeling the call to full time ministry, Steve stepped away from a 20 year career in the aviation field to follow his heart and passion that God has placed in his heart. A heart and a passion to see people become “Christ Followers” and doing this through relationships. Steve has competed in over 20 triathlons and multiable running events. Leigh has also participated in over 20 triathlons with several top overall finishes! First involved with FCA Endurance in 2009, Steve and Leigh saw the tremendous opportunity to us their passion for sports and to take the life changing message out to a hurting people. Both for Christians and non-Christians. Through their local huddle in Savannah, they were able to see a great growth on the team, most importantly with the deeper God walk in their teammates. In 2011, God opened a door for Steve to pursue a full time staff position with FCA Endurance. Steve made the decision to step out of the boat and pursue this call, and he joined staff in February of 2012. He and Leigh are excited about what the future holds for their lives as the opportunity to serve the FCA Endurance family.
