Meet the Pastors

 Senior Pastor  Stephen Bergfield

Pastor Steve, alongside his wife Annamaria and daughter Marisa, came to Ocean Lakes Church in 2008 with a passion for reaching the Sauls of this world, people who have potential but nowhere to develop it. He has always found strength and guidance in the writings of Paul. Paul started his life as an enemy of Christians but became one of their staunchest supporters after an encounter with the risen Savior. Pastor Steve leads by a desire to shepherd a church that he would want to attend. His leadership style gives Ocean Lakes Church a mark of love for our God, love for one another, and passion for our community. Pastor Steve and his family see Ocean Lakes Church as an extension of their own family, with the same Father.
