Pastor Steven grew up in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, where at age 16 he realized God's plan for him to start a life-changing church in a metropolitan city.
This vision became a tangible reality when Elevation was founded on the faith of eight families who risked everything. Selling their houses and quitting their jobs, they moved to Charlotte believing that God would turn this city upside down for His glory through the local church.
After nearly five years, Elevation Church has grown to more than 8,000 in attendance each week at four locations. Since our launch, we've seen more than 10,900 people receive Christ. In 2007, 2008 and 2009, Elevation Church was named one of the "10 fastest growing churches in America" by Outreach Magazine.
The heart of Pastor Steven's message is audacious faith and how to approach every experience from a visionary perspective. As a young voice in the Church with wisdom beyond his years, his passion for seeing God's purposes fulfilled is igniting a fire here in our city and beyond.
Pastor Steven attended North Greenville University, received a B.A. in communications and went on to complete a Master of Divinity from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
He resides in the Charlotte area with his wife, Holly, and two sons, Elijah and Graham.

But here in the slums of Kampala, Uganda, so many children are sick because the food they eat is cooked right next to the hole in the ground where they go to the bathroom. So our church is building the nicest toilets we can here&...for the children.&"
&&&I had a hard time concentrating as he went on laying out his plans. Because as soon as he said the word &"children,&" my gaze drifted to a cluster of kids playing some variation of Capture the Flag on the trash heap behind the church. The church was really just a shed. And instead of a flag, the kids appeared to be competing for an orange peel. It was weird how content these kids seemed playing with just a peel&-more content, it appeared to me, than a lot of kids back home seem playing with a Wii. And this ga
