Community Elder, Coach, Writer, and Storyteller
Steve Garrett is a long-time resident of The Dalles, raising his family here while serving as Associate Pastor, Youth Pastor, and principal of The Dalles Christian School at The Dalles Christian Center. He is currently retired, spending time with ten grandchildren.
Married for 46 years to his high school sweetheart, Jeanne, the two of them have been employed in the education field for over two decades. Steve served as Discipline officer at The Dalles High School while Jeanne served 22 years as a teacher/teacher’s aide at St. Mary’s Academy. Steve was also the Varsity Softball Coach at The Dalles High from 2005 through 2017. Coaching remains a huge part of his life as well.
Their love for the youth of the community is widely known and respected. They have five children of their own, all now grown, leaving the couple as empty nesters, but still strongly connected to all of their children and grandchildren.
Steve was ordained in 1995 under the Assemblies Of God International while serving as an elder at The Dalles Christian Center. He enjoys writing, music, golf and confesses to absolute addiction to Pickleball. The couple hikes and loves taking grandkids to events to remain active and in shape.
Steve’s vision is to bring people into a fuller understanding of the spiritual inheritance that each of us has in Christ. Through his lifestyle, ministry, and writing, he seeks to bring every person into the fullness that God has for them. Another great desire is to see fathers love their children as outlined in Malachi 4:4-6.
Both he and Jeanne are life-long learners and know the importance of always moving forward in their walk. They currently attend Covenant Christian Church in The Dalles.
