Steve Schell

Senior Pastor


Steve Schell graduated from St. Olaf College in Minnesota, and he earned his Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees at Fuller Theological Seminary. Prior to becoming a Foursquare pastor in 1979, Steve served in Presbyterian churches as a Youth Director, Director of Evangelism and Assistant Pastor.


In 1979 Steve and his wife Mary responded to the Lord's call to pastor a Foursquare Church in the Northwest District. From 1984 to 1987 Steve taught Greek, Old Testament Prophets, Bible Interpretation and Preaching at L.I.F.E. Bible College in California. Then Steve and Mary pioneered a church in Tempe, Arizona from 1987 until 1991 when they moved back to the Northwest District to become the Senior Pastor of Northwest Church and the South King County Superintendent. Steve is also on the Foursquare Board of Directors and chairs three committees (Education, Governance and Doctrine).
