We have a new Ohio Conference Pathfinder leader. Pastor Carlson is the new Director of Youth Ministry for the Ohio Conference. Besides Pathfinders his reponsabilities include: conference director for Adventurers, leading the summer program at Camp Mohaven, and being a resource person for all youth ministry in the Ohio Conference.
He and his wife Daisy join us from California, where Steve was a pastor for teens and young adults at The Place, a church in the Southern California Conference. He was raised in Lodi, California and loves to golf, surf, travel, and be bald. He and Daisy have two boys – Ian and Gavin.
Steve is part of an Adventist ministry family: his father is Pastor Ron Carlson, now president of the Kansas-Nebraska conference. Steve grew up in North Dakota, Missouri, and California. He’s a graduate of Union College in Lincoln, NE. Daisy, also a Union College graduate, is from Kansas City. Prior to The Place Steve ministered at Campion Academy (home of the Campion Cougars!) in Loveland, Colorado.
