Steven R. Schultz
Pastor Steven Schultz has been in ministry since 1989.† He spent two and a half years as Associate Pastor at Last Days Praise Center in Madison, Wisconsin. He then went to Nairobi, Kenya where he and his wife, Mary, planted a church. They were in Kenya for two years and then they were called back to Madison, where he served as senior pastor of Lighthouse Church Madison for 19 years. Pastor Steven is a member of the General Council of Church on the Rock International and Church on the Rock Regional Director for the North Central Eastern Region.
Pastor Steven and Mary have been married over 40 years and have five children: Becky, Jenny, Lance, Dayana, and Harley. They also have ten grandchildren. Pastor Steven has a Bachelorís Degree in Christian Education, a Masters Degree in Christian Psychology, and a Doctorate in Theology from Jacksonville Theological Seminary.
After his return to Madison in November, 1993, Pastor Steven had a vision to reach out to the foreigners and aliens in the city of Madison. As a result, many people from Central and South America as well as families from Africa have become members of Lighthouse Church. Lighthouse Church in Madison currently has members from 30 different nations.†
In July, 1995, Lighthouse Church Madison had the opportunity to plant a church in Appleton, WI. Lighthouse Church Madison also planted a church in Waterloo, WI in 1999, and a church in Crystal Lake, IL in 2001. The church that Pastor Steven planted in Kenya is thriving and is part of Church on the Rock, International, under the oversight of David Hatley. Pastor Steven has a vision for missions and a strong belief that Lighthouse Church will have the opportunity to plant churches all over the world.†
Currently, God has given Pastor Steve the vision to plant a church in St. Joseph, Michigan. Services are held at 10:00 am in the Suite B3 of the Cedarwood Medical Center building, 820 Lester Ave, St. Joseph, Michigan (off Niles Ave, just behind Dairy Queen). He is excited about what God is doing and about the people He is bringing together to worship in St. Joe.
Jesus Christ has commissioned us to be soldiers in His army. Luke 10, verse one, says that Jesus commissioned seventy others. Today, God is releasing workers into the harvest field. We are called to be part of this harvest. Not all Christians are called to pastor; but all Christians are called to labor in the harvest field. The most precious commodity in Godís kingdom is not buildings or programs, but people. Workers in Godís kingdom are precious.† As you are reading this, please realize there is unbelievable potential in your life.
