Steve Dang is a graduate from Fuller Theological Seminary (MDiv ’11) and Azusa Pacific University (BA – Biblical Studies and Christian Ministries ’05). Steve and Kate met their senior year of high school and have been together since 2002 and married in 2008. Family dynamics changed when they added Evangeline (2012) and Felicity (2015). Kate has been a Registered Nurse since 2006 and Steve has been serving in various roles since 2008, but currently is the Campus Pastor and Director of Alumni at Valley Christian Schools in San Jose, CA. Ministry is their passion and calling. Together they walk alongside teens, emerging adults and newly married couples through mentorship, coaching, and pastoring. Steve is a regular guest speaker at various camps, schools, churches and parachurch organizations. Steve participated as a YMI innovator and author through the Fuller Youth Institute at Fuller Seminary. Steve likes to say, “my title might be pastor, but really, I like to think of myself as a professional friend.”
In October of 2013 their lives and even the content of this blog took a detour when Steve was diagnosed with a cancer-causing genetic mutation called CDH1 which will lead to a prophylactic total gastrectomy on March 6, 2014. Now a cancer survivor, he’s rebuilding his life to return to being a normal husband, father, pastor and going back to the things he loves doing: motorcycling and triathlons. Life is truly a journey and all we can really do is enjoy the ride. Thanks for coming along for the journey. You can read the first post along with FAQ’s here. Since then, this blog has been about telling our story and the story of God’s faithfulness throughout our journey. Steve is a contributing writer at The Mighty , ambassador for No Stomach for Cancer on the West Coast, and guest speaker for Cancer Care Point. Steve is continuing his education pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry from Wheaton College in Chicago.
