Steven Kohler – Senior Pastor

Steven grew up in the land of milk and honey, also known as Warrenton, Missouri. After serving 8 years in the military and running his personal training business for 5 years, in a less than likely turn of events Steven was called to be a messenger of the Grace of God and to preach Jesus. Steven took the Youth Minister position in the launching of Creekside in June of 2011 and then was asked to Senior Pastor in June of 2012.
The resounding scripture that sums up Steven’s thoughts towards ministry and Jesus is found in Romans 5:8 “But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!” The Christian life according to Steven “has nothing to do with us, and is all about Jesus.”

Steven married his gorgeous wife Mandy in September of 2012 and they just had their first child on August 28th,2013 (Benjamin Keith Kohler). After 20 days in the NICU, Benjamin is a living testimony of the power of God and the sovereignty of our Lord. Steven loves and adores his family and believes that family unity is not only essential but called and appointed by God.

Steven has his Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Counseling from Cornerstone University and is in the process of Graduating with his Masters in Biblical Studies. Steven believes that every Follower of Christ is a life long student of the Word of God.
