Steve Geyer learned to do comedy as a way to cope with the trials of an abusive home and painful childhood. He travelled for 20 years performing stand-up comedy. Prior to becoming a Christian, he worked as a nightclub entertainer opening for such acts as Sinbad, Billy Crystal, and Ray Romano. Steve also hosted the regional HBO Comic Relief Special in 1990.
Steve became a believer while working on the club circuit and began speaking in churches a few years after his conversion. Since then he has recorded a live video and three comedy albums with Star Song Records and has toured with many Christian artists including 4HIM, Point of Grace, DeGarmo & Key, dc Talk, White Heart, and many others. Steve has been a featured speaker at many Christian festivals including Jesus Northwest, Atlanta Fest, and Texas Alive. He also speaks at Youth Specialties Seminars and corporate conventions.
During the mid 90’s Steve travelled extensively across Canada and began transitioning from being a stand-up comic to a preacher, but he has never forgotten the power of laughter to open the heart. He has served as the Outreach Pastor at Heritage Christian Church since June of 2003. Prior to coming to Heritage, he served as the Senior High Pastor at Belmont Church in Nashville, TN.
Steve and his wife Kathy are the parents of two teenage children and live in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia.
