Pastor Steven Long

Senior Executive Pastor - Admin |CFO

How long I've been attending CCFS and my role here:
I have the responsibility of organizing the church in administration, business strategy, expansion, facility management, finance, human resources, missions, organizational structure, staffing, systems improvement, and serve as the corporate Chief Financial Officer.

I have been on staff since 2019 mostly working remotely behind the scenes from California. My favorite thing about working in this ministry is watching others use their God-given gifts to grow and serve in the local church.

How I came to know the Lord:
I came to Christ when I was six years old when NBC released its’ 1978 mini-series, ‘Jesus of Nazareth.’ While not entirely accurate in recounting the life of Jesus, the mini-series so impacted my life, I asked God to forgive me of my sins and proceeded to be water baptized.
Favorite Bible Verses:
Acts 13:36, “For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep and was laid with his fathers…” (ESV). This is my life verse – to merely serve the will of God in my generation.

Favorite worship songs:
‘O Come to the Altar,’ by Elevation Worship. Three symbols here: brokenness, need of restoration, Jesus is calling; so, come to the Altar to be healed by Jesus.

Favorite quotes from Pastor Pat's Sermons:
“Steven Long is so good looking; I wish that I was ½ as good looking as him.” :-)
