Steven Goulstone – Pastor
Steven joined WSBC as the pastor in the middle of 2019. Soon after that, he was asked to write a 6 word memoir. He doesn’t know if he did it right, but the words he chose were:
Loved, broken, hopeful, inclusive, family, disciple.
He likes to think those words shape who he is, and what he’s about. He knows he is loved by God, he realises he is broken, he is hopeful in the face of what is wrong with the world, he believes Jesus is radically inclusive, he loves his family, and he is seeking to learn more and more about what it means to be one of Christ’s disciples. As a pastor, he aims to live in a way that is consistent with those values. Sitting with people where they are at – be it a good space or a bad space or any space in between, is one of the things he loves the most about being a pastor.
Steven also loves hanging out with his family, Pritika and Aaliyah (with a baby on the way). He also loves drinking coffee and watching movies, particularly ones set in a ‘galaxy far far away’ and acknowledges that this makes him a bit of a nerd.
