our Pastoral TEAM

  • Steve Brown, Lead Pastor

    Dr. Steve Brown came to Christ in his late 20's and immediately began serving God by joining the worship team at Scottsdale Bible Church in Scottsdale Arizona. Steve played drums in the orchestra for 17 years and sang lead in a men's quartet while the owner of a graphic arts and printing corporation. As he was discipled by the senior pastor, Steve soon would begin teaching men's Bible studies, Wednesday night services, fill-in from the pulpit and developed a discipleship curriculum for Christians that he taught in the church for many years. Dr. Brown served two consecutive three-year terms as an elder in this mega church. Pastor Brown joined the church as the Pastor of Evangelism and Discipleship as he pursued his Masters of Divinity where he graduated from Phoenix Seminary with highest honors. Steve and his wife Linda were called by God to move to San Diego where as the chancellor of Rock University and the Pastor of Discipleship he personally taught thousands of disciples to make other disciples. Pastor Brown was called by God to plant San Diego Bible Church approximately nine years ago where he served as the founding and lead pastor for seven years before being called by God to move to North Idaho with his wife Linda, again by faith. Steve finished his Doctorate of Ministry this past year at Phoenix Seminary and owns a working ranch in Cocolalla. Steve is an avid outdoors-man who loves to hunt and fish. However, Steve's greatest passion remains teaching the word of God and raising up disciples who make other disciples.
