Steven Smith

Pastoral Care

At the age of 17, Steve had a life-changing encounter with God that went something like this…’God, if You are real and if You are who they say You are, then do something with me’. From that point on his life was transformed.
After serving as Associate Pastor for 12 years and Senior Pastor for 9 years in Gretna, LA, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast region and changed everything in South Louisiana. In Katrina’s aftermath, with a destroyed church and scattered congregation, Pastor Steve and his wife, Becky, purchased the current facility, renovated it and started WestPoint Church in November 2006. His desire is that each person know God and has a knowledge of His Word.
