Steven Gompers returned to his native Coulwood/Mountain Island Lake area home after attending Calvary Chapel Bible College in California. A graduate of West Mecklenburg High School, he loves that he now serves as Pastor of the church he passed each day as a teenager on his way to his first job at the local grocery store. He is passionately committed to seeing his hometown be transformed by the Gospel and by Hillcrest's presence in this community.
Pastor Steven loves teaching the Bible verse by verse, reading with his kids, working on his truck, woodworking, cooking, and grilling.
Steven and his wife Leslie (who is also a MIL native) are the parents of Ava Grace, Lilia, Pate, Jake, and Luke. Their rescue pup Bella and fish Captain America, along with a myriad of snakes, lizards, frogs, and other creatures have been adopted by their family.
