Smith first accepted Jesus Christ at the age of 13. However, as a young teenager he walked away from serving the Lord and began to live his life for himself. At the age of 30 he rededicated his life to Jesus Christ and began to live his life for the Lord.
Prior to being called into full-time ministry, Steve and his wife Vicki owned their own business for 15 years. Steve has spoken in many churches and Full Gospel Businessmen Fellowship International meetings. He has also spoken in a number of churches in Mexico.
God has blessed Steve with the gifts of mercy, love and compassion. Steve is a teacher and preacher of God’s word and is able to bring light on many subjects that have kept God’s people in bondage. Through him, God has been able to bring freedom and peace to many lives. He is also seasoned in the prophetic. He gives all the glory and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ.
The word Steve is hearing in this season is, 1 Corinthians 15:58: “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
Steve and Vicki planted the Cornerstone South Family Life Church in McConnelsville in 2004. They are blessed to have been married 48 years. They reside in Zanesville and have two daughters and seven grandchildren.
