Pastor Steve has a passion for preaching and his first book is set to be released in Oct, 2018. Steve is a big fan of the 6-time Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers. His hobbies include working out, fishing, hunting, riding motorcycles and jet-skis. He especially enjoys date nights with Michelle.

Presentation: Pastor Steve Estep and MFCN are engaged in partnerships with LODO, Habitat for Humanity, and the Marion County Land Bank for the purpose of neighborhood revitalization. In the last year they have purchased blighted properties, are in the process of building two new houses, and have developed a community garden on Garden Street. This week (July 23-29) the people of MFCN are completing 80 projects for Restoration week where 500+ volunteers will serve all over the city. The presentation today will provide details about these partnerships and how you can be involved in the revitalization of Marion.


Rotarians, please remember to sell the OSU season football raffle tickets! This is our main fundraising event and is important to help us fund our club and charitable projects. Simply see Jean Obenour at a meeting to get as many tickets as you want and then sell, sell, sell! Turn money in each week to Jean or Gary Branson. Tickets are only $20 each with pretty good odds for winning. The drawing will be held August 21.
