Our speaker for Friday, September 6 is Steve. He became a believer
in the Lord Jesus Christ when he was 20 years old and soon began
telling the stories from the Word of God to others. When he was 54,
he had a health scare which could have cost him his life. After three months of recovery, and out of appreciation for a spared life, he promised God he would memorize and dramatize the Gospel of John. Now Steve presents the Gospel of John to individuals and groups,
making Jesus’ amazing miracles and message come alive.
Steve tells the Gospel of John from memory and in a storytelling fashion.
Scholars suggest that close to ninety percent of people in Jesus' day
could not read or write, so this is an example of how people
of the first century may have heard the Gospel of John told.
Steve tries to maintain close to a ninety-five percent accuracy
with the version of the text he is using. That version, the "Logos 21 Version"
of the Gospel of John (found all around Orange County, CA.,
in evangelistic outreach) can be found online at: LivingWater.org.
Steve has been married to Diane for 41 years, has two grown,
married sons, and loves to tell the stories of Jesus. They both hail from Minneapolis, MN, and Diane, as Pastor Leland well knows, grew up in the very church (Trinity Lutheran of Minnehaha Falls, in Minneapolis) that he first interned for when he was going to Seminary in St. Paul, MN.
You won’t want to miss this dramatic presentation. Please call in your reservations by Wednesday, September 4 at noon to (949)492-2200.
