Steve Van Winkle
Steve, an architect by profession, was born and educated in Nebraska and met his future wife, Joyce, in church, when then were in High School. Steve has two children, Kristin and Kevin; and three grandkids. When asked about his passion for Crosspoint, Steve responds by saying, “An important effort in life is to strive to know truth. Daniel, in his prayer, recorded in Daniel 9:13, confesses that Israel was not “giving attention to Your truth.” Isaiah states that “truth has stumbled in the street” and that “truth is lacking.” II Peter 2:2 predicts that “the way of truth will be maligned.” At Crosspoint we have that opportunity to know truth. Moses sought ‘men of truth (Ex. 18:21. It’s my prayer that we will develop a congregation that would be known as a community who knows truth and lives accordingly.”
