Lake View Staff

Rev. Stephen E. Smith, Senior Pastor

Steve has been the Senior Pastor of Lake View Church since January 1, 2003.  Steve attended Cedarville University, Spring Arbor University, and Huntington College Grad School.  He and his wife Pam enjoy over 42 years of marriage and are blessed with three children and nine grandchildren.  Steve has served the Lord in pastoral ministry most of his married life in roles such as: Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, Concert Ministry, Impact Minister, and Senior Pastor.

Steve is passionate about the high calling and privilege of preaching and teaching God’s Word so that the lost will come to faith in Jesus Christ, and believers will become deeply rooted in their faith and knowledge of God’s Word, and active in sharing their faith in Jesus Christ to others!  His years of ministry experience and discipling new believers have enabled him to develop and implement a discipleship study that he has titled: Know, Grow, Show!  One of his passions, apart from preaching the truths of God’s Word is one-on-one or small group discipleship!  He enjoys relating with people of all ages and is actively involved in the Iron Men’s Ministry of Lake View.  He enjoys spending time with family, most all sports and riding his motorcycle.

His life verse is: And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.  Philippians 1:6
