Steve and Julie Thompson

Steve Thompson

Steve was born and raised in Blair, Nebraska. While attending the University of Nebraska Lincoln, he placed his trust in Jesus Christ for salvation through the faithfulness of an evangelist. Steve moved to Houston, Texas in 1992 where he met his wife Julie and responded to God’s calling for full time ministry in his life.


Steve and Julie have three children. Joshua is in middle school and Jenna is in elementary school. Jonathan is a fun loving four year old that occupies much of Julie’s time and energy.


Steve’s philosophy of ministry fits with two of his favorite Scriptures. “As a Pastor, I am committed to God’s ordained charge to faithfully preach the Word of God in an expositional manner (2 Timothy 4:1-2 “preach the Word”) so that other believers are equipped for the ministry to the lost and to other saints (Ephesians 4:12 “for the equipping of the saints”).”
