Our Pastor

Stephen King
Reared in Michigan and saved as a teenager, Steve dedicated his life to the Lord shortly after meeting his wife at the hospital in which they both worked. Together they moved to California to train at West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster. In 2009, he was called to join Northstar Baptist Church, where he served as the Associate Pastor for seven years.

Pastor King has a passion for biblical preaching. In addition to counseling, hospital visitation, and church administration, he continues to minister to the teenagers in the Teen Discipleship program.

Steve is joined in the ministry by his wife Tracy and their four children: Marian, Isabel, Hadassah, and Lincoln.

When not ministering, Pastor King enjoys spending time with his family, writing, sailing, military history, following Michigan football, and cycling.
