Steve Munsey has served as senior pastor at the Family Christian Center in Munster since 1984.

"With a passion to share the good news of Jesus, Steve is known as an innovative and dynamic preacher, bridging traditional preaching with the digital era to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and reach lost souls far and wide," according to stevemunseybio.com.

"He is perhaps best known for his television program, "YES YOU CAN," which is carried on Trinity Broadcasting Network and shortwave radio across the world, and has appeared with other renowned preachers such as Joel Osteen."

Munsey grew up in the faith and found his calling at a young age, according to website. 

"Though he connected with the words of the Bible, he felt that Sunday School classes were too dry in expressing the wondrous and powerful stories that he was learning about," according to his website.

He goes on to say that at age 10, he sought to liven up his Sunday School lesson by going to "a nearby utility closet and grabbed whatever 'prop' he could find and came back in as the character she was describing. Each week, his ideas grew with creativity, and the Sunday School began to grow as others were telling their friends to come join them to see Young Steve tell stories on Sundays."

By age 19, he was reportedly traveling the country.

"Signs and wonders began to follow as his faith began to grow in the miracle working power of Jesus," his biography page says. "Testimonies were coming in of people being healed of sickness and disease along with breakthroughs happening in many areas of people's lives."

Steve Munsey is also the author of several books.
