Steve Heerema

Senior Pastor

Steve has a huge heart for the lost and hurting. His passion for Christ can be seen in everything he does. His speaking style is full of energy and leaves you with a golden nugget or two wrapped in a memorable story. Expect to hear a little bit about his family, his time in the Coast Guard, and maybe even a little offensive lineman football talk. Steve also shows up periodically on the “Bev and Steve Show” on KCWN 99.9 FM.

Steve and Vickie have three children. Their daughter, Alexis, is married to Matt and they have a daughter and one on the way! Logan is engaged to be married to Molly, and Jacob is attending Iowa State University.

Favorite quote from Steve: “We will not be enablers of the superficial here. Come as you are, come sincerely, and you will experience Christ.”

Steve’s love for Christ and the transformation of his life through Christ, give him the heart and desire for everyone he meets to really know Jesus and have a personal relationship with Him.
