More Information about our Friday Session Speaker:
Steve McVey is the Executive Director. He served as the Lead Pastor of Lamont Wesleyan Church from 2000 to 2020. Lamont is a rural community of forty people nestled in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Over those two decades of ministry, Lamont went from a church slated to be closed, to a regional church. The church started a satellite location and planted three churches. In the process, Steve began to see rural/small-town America as a mission field.
Fueled by his passion for rural and small-town ministry, Steve was led to start Dirt Roads Network in 2018.
The goal was to plant and revitalize life-giving, Bible-believing, community transforming churches throughout America. To accomplish this, DRN seeks to inspire and train pastors and congregations to see themselves as missionaries, called by God to reach their communities.
Steve is an inspirational conference speaker, gifted teacher, and visionary leader. He works with several ministries including Rural Matters Institute and Crossroads Farm. He advises several denominational leaders in the area of rural ministry. He is often featured in podcasts and magazine articles. He also meets with hundreds of pastors around the country in monthly Zoom calls.
Steve married his lovely wife Samantha in 1989. They have two amazing children. Andrew and his wife Kendra live in Hutchinson, Kansas. They have a daughter and a son on the way. Rebekah and her husband Tyler live in Westfield, Indiana.
