Steve Laughlin

Spiritual Formation Pastor

Steve grew up in Chicago and got a taste of urban ministry by witnessing his dad’s street outreach in the 80’s. He made a profession of faith at a young age, but in his late teens and early adulthood pursued the life of a prodigal. Finally, he fully surrendered his life to Jesus in 1987 at the age of 21. He joined Armitage in 1991 and served for many years as a volunteer youth director, came on staff in 2001, and was ordained as a pastor in 2003. He received his degree in Bible & Theology from Moody Bible Institute in 2010. He has worn many hats during his tenure, including Sunday School teacher, Youth Pastor and Student Ministries Pastor. Currently, he serves as Spiritual Formation Pastor overseeing all Bible Study ministries, leadership development and the CAUSE Internship Program. He has been married to Sherry since 1998 and they have four children—Benjamin, Samuel, Anisa and Klaudia. He is a man of many hobbies, including playing guitar, gardening and the exploring the outdoors—all of which are only enhanced by a hot cup of Earl Grey tea.
