Pastor Steve Longley and family
My primary responsibilities include preaching, leadership development, and providing directional leadership for our church.
Cheri and I have been married since 1987. We have four sons, Benjamin (91), Jaremy (92), Caleb (97) and Noah (03). Our guys have their mother’s sweet temperament and their father’s twisted sense of humor.
I was born in Kansas City, grew up in Lakewood, Colorado, and have spent my entire life living between Colorado and the Kansas City area.

I love outdoorsy stuff like camping, hiking, fishing, and kayaking. I also love working with my hands around our property. When I need some time to be quiet I paint and write. Most of all I love being with Cheri, our boys and their families. Nothing makes me beam with pride like my grandkids.
