Steve is the Crossroads Worship Leader. Steve is a hometown boy, having grown up in Rochester and leading worship in Thurston county for many years. Steve's role as a Worship Leader led him to California where he met and married the ray of sunshine known as Samantha. Thankfully, the Lord brought the Rusters back to Washington where they can explore the Pacific Northwest outdoors with their two children. When not immersed in music, Steve can be found on one of his many projects as a contractor.
