               Title: Get the Most Out of Each Day

                    (View Each Day as Borrowed Time)

​Steve was born Oct. 21st 1960 in Royal Oak, Michigan. He earned a B.S. in Economics from West Chester University in 1982. Upon graduation, he joined the U.S.  Navy and was commissioned and trained as a pilot in 1983-84. He married his college sweetheart Megan, in July of 1984. Since then they have moved 15 times and they have 8 children.

Steve left active duty in 1991 and was hired by American Airlines the same year. He currently flies the Boeing 777 out of JFK Airport normally flying routes that take him to Europe and beyond.

During the late 90’s, Steve started his graduate education at Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary in Lansdale PA. He was awarded a Master of Arts in Theological Studies in 2006 and a Master of Arts in Christian Ministries in 2007. Steve earned his Doctor of Ministry degree in May 2011 from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. His dissertation topic was the role of parents in the character development of children.

Steve remained active in the Navy Reserve until her retired as a Commander from the U.S. Navy in 2012. He is currently a First Officer for American Airlines. He recently retired as Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church of Topsham, ME to become the President of Characterhealth Corporation; a non-profit conference ministry aimed at equipping parents to train the next generation of character-healthy leaders.

In 2001, Steve was asked to design and teach a course in Navy Core Values. The course has found broad acceptance and Steve is a highly sought after trainer and motivational speaker.

Steve and Megan are instrumental in the lives of young parents. They have developed a parenting course entitled Parenting Matters; The Nine Practices of The Proactive Parent. He is also the author of several books and studies. Steve and Megan have been guests on Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson and The Glenn Beck TV program showcasing their Nine Practice of The Proactive Parent.
