Speaking

Steve came to our church to present a forum on self-care and the basics of suicide prevention. It was one of the best events I’ve been privileged to host in more than 20 years of local church ministry. Drawing from his personal experience, Steve takes his audience on a journey from despair to hope, from chaos to calm. Full of wit and wisdom, his 90 minute presentation left everyone wanting more. We look forward to having Steve back again in the near future.
