Steve Lamberson

Steve Lamberson, Elder Emeritus

Steve was born in San Diego, when his father was in the Navy. His father was a pastor and eventually moved near Chicago where Steve met the woman who would be his wife. Shirley and Steve were married in 1975. Eleven years later, after a year of graduate theology training, pastoring a small American Missionary Fellowship church near Portland OR, and many years of medical education and training, Shirley and Steve and their 3 children moved to Marshfield in 1986. Their fourth child was born one year later. They now have one child in each of the states that surround Lake Michigan, as well as four grandchildren. In 1997, Steve and Shirley began meeting with the core group of believers that were led by God to plant an Evangelical Free Church in Marshfield. This plant became Cornerstone Church in February 2000, and Steve and Shirley consider Cornerstone to be the best church experience they have ever had. Steve is now semi-retired, and is enjoying spending extra time with grandchildren (and adult children too).
