I have been a member of Elkridge Baptist Church since 1962. I was ordained to the Deacon Ministry in 1978 and am currently serving as Chaiman. I have been married to Gloria Steele for over 50 years. We have three sons, six grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. I teach a Sunday School class for adults as well as working in several other ministries of the church.
I am retired from Westinghouse Electric Corporation since June 1994 where I worked for 41 years as an electrical engineer with the last 28 years being in management.
I love sports. I am a long time Orioles and Ravens fan. I even remember the "Baltimore Colts" and loved to watch John Unitas pass to Raymond Berry on the sidelines or Jimmy Orr in the end zone corner. Golf is my current sport preference. I do wish my current handicap could be lower than it is.
I am currently serving as the Sunday Morning Worship Leader.
Hello, I have been attending Elkridge Baptist Church since 2000. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, leader in my life, and was baptised on September 9th, 2001 at the age of 34. I can’t begin to tell you how this has changed my life for the better.
I have held many positions within the church since becoming a member including Property and Space Chairman and Men’s Ministry Director. As the Men’s Ministry Director, I started a men’s bible study group that meets every Monday night for Fellowship, Discipleship and most importantly Worship. We are always looking for more men to join our group to help grow the Kingdom of God.
Our group has also performed many community projects including helping install roofs, yard work, moving assistance, and countless other projects for our growing community. We have assisted as servers for the Women’s Banquet and on several occasions have hosted a breakfast for the all members on Mothers Day. We enjoy working together for the common goal of bringing Glory to God and growing his Kingdom.
I live locally with my wife Debbie, our four children, Courtney, Jordon, Julianne, and Joshua. We also have 1 grandson, Logan who also lives with us and is a joy to watch grow up around us. Two of our children are currently attending college, one at Hood College in Frederick, MD and the other at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. We couldn’t be any more proud of all four of them and look forward to where they are being led in life.
Please come join us and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the e-mail link above.

Jessica graduated from Mississippi State University in 2012 with a B.S. in Nutrition and a minor in Spanish. During her undergraduate she traveled to MD and took courses at the University of Maryland, College Park. Throughout her college career she worked with the Extended Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP), established nutrition education classes at Sunshine Club (an afterschool Christian daycare), and coordinated many other community service projects. Jessica joined Elkridge Baptist in 2013 and immediately began working with the EBC Youth Program.
Jessica and her husband Travis will be celebrating their four-year-anniversary this December and are expecting their first child this fall. They love spending time with the youth and pre-schoolers, going on dates to Starbucks, and attending Bible Study/Decipleship classes.
Aside from loving youth ministry, Jessica also enjoys nutrition education, Taido, Taekwondo, going on long walks with Princess (her cat), and re-reading Jane Eyre; is an avid couponer; and experiments with DIY projects on Pintrest. In the future, it is Jessica's goal to see the youth of Elkridge Baptist continue to strengthen their foundation in God and share their faith with others as living testimonies.
I currently serve as the Director of the WMU. I have been attending this church since it was a established.
