Recognize the Power of your Words
Proverbs 12:18 states, “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” How have things people have said affected your life? What words have dominated the way you think, feel, and live day-by-day?
The words that really matter are from above!
Dr. Steven Lennertz is Founder and Lead Pastor of Eagle Ridge Church in Menifee, California. Steve accepted Christ as his Savior and Lord in 1975 during what is known as the "Jesus Movement" at a Saturday night concert at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. As a young man, Steve worked in cabinet shops, and later obtained a Contractor’s License. He owned one of the Inland Empire’s premier cabinet shops for over twelve years. It was during this time Steve sensed God calling him into full time ministry. He surrendered to God’s leading to plant a church in Menifee in 1994.
Steve has a passion for life and for helping others find their purpose. His in-depth teaching from God’s Word equips people to be effective followers of Jesus Christ. In addition to shepherding the flock at Eagle Ridge, Steve had served as a Chaplain for the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and is now devoting all his energies at Eagle Ridge.
Steve earned a Bachelor’s Degree from California Baptist University, a Master of Arts in Theology with a concentration in Pastoral Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Gateway Seminary in December of 2017.
Pastor Steve is a native Californian; married for 40 years to Kathryn, who is also a graduate of CBU with a Bachelor, and a Masters in Education. Steve and his wife enjoy spending time with their family. They have a daughter, two sons, and they are especially blessed with eleven grandchildren.
