Steve Canter

Steve Canter and his wife Jennifer have been married since 1997 and have three daughters. Although they relocated to Brooklyn, New York in December 2013, they felt they were “home” since their first time in the city. They love the density of people and diversity of cultures that only an urban context like NYC can provide. Steve is a graduate of Cumberland College and, before coming to NAMB in 2006, served as a student pastor, church planter and in associational missions primarily in Cincinnati, Ohio. Steve most recently was the Missionary Development Coordinator for NAMB, helping to establish the NAMB missionary Farm System. Throughout his ministry experience, he has focused on developing missionary leaders to provide laborers for the harvest field with a particular burden for indigenous minority leaders. Steve has played an integral part in establishing the Rebuild Network, a network of churches focused on developing multiethnic leaders for the urban context, and is currently the Northeast director. Steve is also an elder at The Bridge Church in Brooklyn, NY. In his free time Steve loves exploring the city with his family. He enjoys eating chicken wings and drinking coffee (not at the same time). His favorite Scripture verses are Isaiah 55:8-9.
