steve is our bible teacher for the weekend and we are excited to be welcoming him and his wife diana back with us.
Steve and his wife Diana and their two kids, Caleb and Isabella, moved out to South Africa in 2015 after a call from God to give away everything they had and move to Cape Town to serve on a township. With friends they built the SOZO Foundation, an education centre training and transforming lives. Steve spoke at both our Shift Weekend and New Years Eve events before leaving for South Africa. We are excited to be welcoming them back to be with us again this year!
