Steve Hale grew up in Murray and attended First Baptist with his family. Following his graduation from Murray State, he attended Southwestern Baptist Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. Through his ministry as an evangelist Steve seeks to take the life-changing message of Jesus Christ to a nation that has lost its moral compass as he leads churches in a time of renewal. Realizing that many of our nation’s social and moral concerns can be attributed to fatherless homes, an important aspect of his ministry is conducting men’s conferences. He believes “millions of families are in deep pain and it is most often traced to men who have embraced misplaced priorities.” His conferences stress the importance of men giving their first allegiance to God.
