Steve Newton

Elder

Steve leads a Grace Group and assists with various technical needs including computer and network issues, as well as website and sound setup. He also has the privilege of occasionally teaching the adult Core Class time.

Steve currently works in the IT department at ScanSource, a locally headquartered but global distribution company. He has worked there for almost 14 years, and his most recent role is as an ABAP developer implementing a global SAP system.

Steve graduated from Taylor University with a B.S. in Computer Science with an emphasis in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Systems. The focus on godly servant leadership there, whether it finds expression in a technical workplace or in serving God’s people in a local church body, has been a good foundation to work from in seeking to live for the glory of God.

Having grown up as a missionary kid in Bolivia, Steve has always enjoyed the outdoors and building things, so with the blessing of five boys and one girl living on several acres in rural South Carolina along with his wife Libby, he gets to routinely do both in his back yard. Volleyball has also been a long-time passion and despite aging knees, Steve and several coworkers set up a net and play often over lunch, which has been a lot of fun and has developed and deepened friendships at work.
