The vision of Gym Bag Bible is to empower people to live as radiant children of God. Through the intentional combination of body, mind and soul, Gym Bag Bible creates a dynamic energy where a person expresses in thought and action the living presence of God. It takes seriously the notion that we are called by God through Jesus to live as people of light. The path of the Gym Bag Bible is challenging. It will require a realignment of your priorities and commitments so that you make time each day for exercise, reflection and devotion. By intentional living in this way, we grow in faith and courage, and our lives transform. We rise as stars not only toward Jesus, but we shine a path for others to follow. As you join with the many that have traveled the Gym Bag Bible journey, you too will discover this radiance.

Steve's love of the outdoors began along the beaches of San Diego where he was born and raised. Steve literally ran and cycled his way through his education at Whitworth College in Spokane Washington, his Masters of Divinity at San Francisco Theological Seminary and his Doctorate of Ministry at McCormick Theological seminary in Chicago. Living with his wife and three children in the Rockies outside of Denver provides Steve the perfect playground to pursue all of his passions; mountain biking, cycling, skiing, horse back riding, weight lifting and Tae Kwan Do. As the Sr. Pastor of Columbine United Church in Littleton, Colorado, Steve enjoys teaching others the dynamic of faithfulness and fitness.
