Steve Simala-Grant – Director of Kurios
Steve is passionate about discipleship of the next generation and brings more than 25 years of pastoral, teaching, business and leadership experience to this position.
"Growing young Christian disciples and leaders is where I’ve known both the greatest joy and seen the deepest fruitfulness in my ministry. Kurios excites me, and I feel a very strong call from the Holy Spirit to commit myself completely to this high call of cultivating leadership among the next generation. I find myself regularly dreaming about ways to help young people grow their love for Jesus, His Kingdom, and our lost world." - Steve Simala-Grant
Steve’s educational background includes a Bachelor of Religious Education (North American Baptist College), Master of Divinity (Edmonton Baptist Seminary), and Master of Education (University of Alberta).
Steve is husband to Joanne (who would love to go to Disney World with him to see the fireworks) and father to Thomas (whom he believes he can still beat in an arm-wrestling match). Steve loves the outdoors including tent camping in -5oC, as well as snowshoeing 27km in a single day. He is also a collector of tools, both construction and kitchen (a favorite is his smoker in which he makes a mean brisket).
Steve would love to chat with you about Kurios and even buy you warm beverage when he is in your area. Feel free to reach out to him at firstname.lastname@example.org
