First Pres to Welcome New Organist February 4
About Steve Strite
First Pres is excited to announce the hiring of our new Organist, Steve Strite. The Lord has led both Steve and us to the same conclusion; the next chapter in his life and ours are to work together in ministry at First Pres. Steve will come to us in February 2018 from Bradenton Christian Reformed Church in Bradenton, FL where he has served as Director of Music and Worship since 2004. Previously he had been for seven years at Cornerstone Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Brighton, MI as Assistant Director of Music. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in organ from Oakland University and a Master’s Degree in organ from the University of Michigan. Steve is a member of both the AGO and the ACDA professional music organizations. Steve has much experience both in classical music and well as contemporary worship music. In addition, he is a fine composer with several published works by major publishers. He was the organist for the 23rd EPC General Assembly and is a thoroughly Reformed church musician! Steve will be joined by his wife, Becky, and their two daughters Allison, a sixth grader, and Julianne, a fifth grader. Please pray for their family as they make this big transition to Orlando.
