The Basics



  • Our Pastor, Steve Rice, is in his 16th year of leading our congregation as Lead Pastor. Pastor Steve and his wife, Judy, have 4 grown children and
  • grandchildren (that's a lot!) in the St. Louis and Kansas City areas.

    Pastor Steve was saved at the age of 9 and called to preach at 15. He has his Bachelor of Arts degree from William Jewell College and his Master of Divinity degree from Luther Rice Seminary. Pastor Steve, otherwise known as “Riceman” in his radio days, was on the Christian radio station WCBW in the late 80’s and early 90’s as a teen call-in talk show host for “Distant Images”. He served many years as Youth Pastor and Associate Pastor in various churches in the Midwest region. He has the gift of preaching the Word in a dynamic way. His heart is to see as many people come to Jesus as possible, which means he has the pulse of today's church and changes our church to accommodate the culture. Things are always changing at Christway to find new ways to reach people for Christ. He enjoys golfing, reading, golfing, dining, golfing, people watching, and golfing in his spare time. Oh yeah, did we mention he likes to golf?

  • Our Worship Leader, Judy Rice, Pastor Steve's wife, has served as our worship leader for 10 years. She combines her musicical talents with her love
  • for the Lord to lead God's people in worship experiences that are uplifiting and inspirational. She also coordinates our women's ministry.

    Judy was saved when she was 12 years old and has always served in the music ministry of her church as organist, pianist, and choir member. She is also employed full-time at a large church in West St. Louis County as the Business Administrator of their church, school, and early childhood center. She enjoys entertaining, decorating, and of course, lots of shopping in her extra time. Cooking is optional! Very optional!
