To Every Tribe
After 13 years as Pastor-Teacher of Kishwaukee Bible Church, in the summer of 2016 Steve Leston is beginning a new role: Director of the Center for Pioneer Church Planting (CPCP). The CPCP is To Every Tribe’s training center through which missionaries are trained to do pioneering work–to take the Good News of Jesus to places without a gospel presence.
Steve’s life and ministry are driven by a desire to help people understand the Scriptures and experience the deep and life-changing transformation that comes from the Word of God. Steve has served as the Pastor Teacher of Kishwaukee Bible Church since 2003. Prior to coming to KBC, he served as a pastor in Petersburg, Alaska and Warrenville, Illinois. For over 20 years, Steve has been passionate about teaching God’s word and investing in the next generation the good news of the gospel through non-formal, church-based training. He is the author of several commentaries in the Quicknotes commentary series as well as The Bible and World History: Putting Scripture in a Global Context. Steve is married to his wife, Heather, and has four children. Steve holds a Bachelor of Ministry, Master of Theology, and Doctor of Bible Studies degrees.
