Favorite verse: I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength

Phillipians 4:13

Steve grew up on a farm near Warrenburg, Mo where his family raised many varieties of livestock and crops.  He grew up attending First Christian Church in Knob Noster, where his father had grown up and later became an elder. 

Steve's parents also helped found the West Central Missouri Christian Service Camp in LaMonte, where he accepted Christ as his savior and was baptized in the early 1960's.

After high school, Steve attended Ozark Bible College; he then graduated from University of Central Missouri with a degree in Agriculture.  Steve farmed with his father for many years.  Then went to work as a firefighter with the Leawood, Kansas Fire Department, where he remained until he retired. 

Steve has been married to his wife Linda for 37 years.  They have a grown son, adopted from Russia.  He will soon be marrying a wonderful young lady, Megan. Providentially, Alexsay now pastors the church where Steve and his father were raised. 

Steve is grateful for parents who showed that Christ is the priority in everything they did, even if it meant sacrificing things on the farm to serve Him.

Wiley Conner



Favorite Verse: Do everything without grumbling or arguing,  so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky  as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.

Philippians 2:14-16
