Campus Pastor, Steve Rivera



Pastor Steve was raised in Silver Spring, Maryland where he attended a private school and later pursued his B.A. at the University of Maryland. As Steve started attending Church of the Redeemer, he also began serving in the student ministry at the church. While working in physical therapy at the age of 25, he felt the Holy Spirit prompting him to pursue full-time ministry. Not long after that, Steve joined the staff of Church of the Redeemer and launched our young adult ministry, Axis. After serving in Axis for three years, Steve became the Campus Pastor for our Frederick campus.
Steve and his wife, Christi, reside in the Germantown area with their two boys.

Pastor Steve’s vision for Church of the Redeemer Frederick is to grow fruitful followers of Jesus Christ as well as move outside the walls of the church by meeting the spiritual and practical needs of the Frederick community.
