Steve Taylor is a deeply dedicated Christian who has served in collaborative, results oriented ministries for more than 20 years. As a missionary in faith-based community transformation, Steve has extensive experience in assisting congregations through ministry discernment and creative mission development.
In urban and rural environments, Steve has helped local churches serve alongside community organizations, blending together diverse groups, collective fiscal resources, efforts, and spiritual energies. Steve developed multiple spiritual formation programs that connect risk-taking ministry with evangelistic outreach while serving as the director of one of the largest church and community centers within our denomination.
In recent years, Steve has trained extensively in the process of biblical animation, a highly interactive experiential engagement with scripture as the model for outreach, and Sabbath Economics, a Wesleyan ministry model leading Christian communities to a more sustainable household economy.
In all things, Steve challenges believers to ask, “Where do we see Jesus?” and brings a passion for discovering the heart of God in our relationships with the least of these. “When we participate in ministry with the poor, it is not simply an act of humanitarian concern; it is an act of sacred communion with the Jesus who says he is found with those who are hungry or in prison. It is fundamentally a space of Christian transformation.”
