Rev. Steve McPeek

Pastor of Bradley United Methodist Church

Rev. Steven McPeek (Pastor Steve) grew up in an African-American United Methodist Church and loved the diversity of people and experiences. He was called into ministry as a teenager while attending church: being active in the Bible study class, youth group, and young adult choir. These experiences gave him a broader picture of the love and grace of God. He strives to share the love and grace of God with others because we are all one family. It doesn’t matter our race, culture, economic situation, or faith background.

Pastor Steve loves working with people and churches to discover their passion, purpose, and vision. You might find Pastor Steve helping at The Landing downtown serving a meal to the youth in our community. His passion is to encourage and assist people in encountering the presence of God in their daily lives.

At Bradley UMC Pastor Steve seeks to create a place for everyone to come and discover a community of love and respect. A place where everyone has something to contribute to the glory of God. We are all created in the image of God. We are all on a spiritual journey together. At Bradley UMC you are beloved of God. You are invited to seek, question, and grow in your spiritual life here. There is a place for you to contribute and participate in the ministry and love of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Steve is from Muncie, Indiana. He graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Arts Management. He worked in the printing business before entering pastoral ministry in 1998. Pastor Steve married his wife Annette in 1988 and they have two adult children and three granddaughters who live in Northeast Indiana. Pastor Steve graduated from United Theological Seminary in 2003 with a Master of Divinity degree. In 2019 Pastor Steve was awarded the Steven L. Baily Award from the Youth Service Bureau of Huntington, Indiana for his dedication and passion for making a difference in the lives of youth and families. For fun, Pastor Steve enjoys photography, nature, golfing, and spending time with family.

From Pastor Steve: I love working with and ministering to the people of Bradley UMC and Greenfield. I have found the congregation to be on a quest to discover how to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.  I see it in how welcoming and grace-filled they are as we worship and minister together. They desire to love people.  They understand everyone is created in the image of God. I have found their passion is to love God and neighbor through worship, community service, and meeting together to grow in their faith.

I invite you to come and join us on this spiritual journey of faith, hope, and LOVE!
