Spotlight on Josh Steele

Over the next several months, we're highlighting ministry leaders at Savior. These leaders have answered some questions to help us get to know them and their ministries better.


Deacon Josh Steele, along with his wife Rachel and brand-new daughter Eva, has been attending Church of the Savior for a little more than a year. Josh serves in multiple roles at Savior, including volunteering with youth and on the worship team. He also manages Savior's website and coordinates the Pastoral Care ministry.

Where do you live, and where are you from?

I live in Carol Stream, IL with my wife Rachel and daughter Eva. I'm originally from Toledo, OH.

What do you do when you’re not at church?

I'm a Ph.D. student in theology at Wheaton College and the Managing Editor at

My hobbies include holding Eva, watching soccer, and reading about productivity and leadership.

What's something unusual about you?

In high school, I ate mostly oatmeal (at least twice a day) for an entire year.

How does the ministry you lead serve the life of our congregation?

I hope that the website, the Breeze online directory, and my coordination of pastoral care all help to enlarge and enrich the sense of community at Savior.

How can people get involved in the ministry you lead?

For the website, we could use another person or two to join JoAnn McNeely in uploading old sermons to the Sermon Archive. For the Breeze online directory, we could use a few people who are willing to learn and train others on the basics of volunteer scheduling using Breeze.

With pastoral care, we could use a few more people who are willing to spend time with and encourage others. If you're interested in any of these things, please contact me—in person, by phone, or by email.
