From our Pastor . . .
Rev. Steven Brand

Hi everyone! My name is Rev Steven Brand and I am the pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Newark Ohio. I have been the pastor since October of 2012. Before coming to Newark I was the pastor of Wickliffe Presbyterian, just east of Cleveland for 3 years. I was born and raised in Elyria Ohio. I am a graduate of Sheffield High School, Ohio University, and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. At Ohio University I received my Bachelors in Political Science and much more importantly met my wife Diana. Diana and I have been married for 12 years. She is a paralegal and works about a block away at Reese, Pyle, Drake & Meyer. We have a 6 year old son Calvin and a daughter named Katelynn who is 2. He is named after Calvin and Hobbs and does his best to model his namesake. She is named as a tie in to Princess Kate as Diana was named after Princess Diana. We also have a black lab/springer spaniel named Two-Scoops and a cat named Maggie.  

We enjoy traveling and getting to know the out of the way local spots. That is just a little bit about me and my family. I look forward to meeting you!
