Steve was born in England and immigrated to Canada at a young age, where he and his family (Gordon & Maureen Woods), settled in the Waterford area. Coming to the Lord in his mid-twenties, life just changed. With a heart’s desire to serve God, His Lord and Savior, a few years later, Steve felt God calling Him into full-time ministry. In 1989 he started his schooling at Tyndale Bible College and Seminary while at the same time being hired at Waterford Baptist Church as Youth Pastor. Six years later, Steve and Ruth Ann felt God calling them to a Pastoral Ministry, under the direction of Rural Life Mission (Hagersville, ON) in a remote Northern Community, Geraldton Ontario.
In 1994, Steve, Ruth Ann and their three girls, Misty, Brittany and Abby, packed up and moved to Geraldton Ontario, where they lived while ministering at Geraldton Faith Chapel. They spent 23 years in ministry there, where many good, lifelong friendships were developed.
Sensing that God was calling them in another direction and ministry, and after much prayer and discussion, Steve was offered the position of Senior Pastor at Boston Baptist Church. On September 10, 2017, Steve started his ministry in Boston.
We trust that God in His grace, mercy and love, will continue to guide and direct us in the days ahead as we minister with the folk at Boston Baptist Church, standing shoulder to shoulder with the KING, as we minister, as we worship, as we reach out to the lost within our community for HIM.
