Steve RogersUCC Outreach Coordinator Instructor

Although Steve was raised in a Christian home, for many years he had no peace in his heart. It was not until the tragic death of his sister in 1978 that he experienced a full life-changing encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. Shortly thereafter he dedicated his life to sharing God’s Word with others.
