My name is Steve Dunn (although my mother named me Stephen). I am a veteran pastor of over 40 years, a husband to Dianne for pretty much the same amount of time. We have raised four children and now dote on seven great grandchildren. I have been a denominational staff person, a university and seminary adjunct, a denominational president, a pastor or an intentional interim pastor for eight different congregations in Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania ranging in size from about 80 to over 700. I have served in cross-cultural mission settings among the Navajos and in Haiti. I received a D. Min. in 2005 with a 400 page project entitled “Fanning into Flame–How the Holy Spirit Leads a Church to an Outward Focus.”
I have written in many forms and in January 2015 had my first book published called The Bridgebuilders Principle.” I am a prolific blogger–writing or contributing to more than a dozen blogs.
