Steven is originally from the Philippines and migrated to southern California with his family at a young age. A few years later, he moved to central Texas and spent most of his life growing up there. Steven graduated with a BA in Psychology from Texas A&M University where he met and married his wife, Holly. They spent the next decade in the Dallas/Plano area where Steven received his ThM in Systematic Theology and Intercultural Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. Steven and Holly have two boys who they treasure deeply: Theodore and Miles. Steven loves hanging out with Holly and the boys, reading, trying out new foods, learning new things, and the Lakers (please forgive him).
