From our Pastor . . .
Rev. Steven B. 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 15 years. She is a paralegal and works about a block away at Reese, Pyle, & Drake. We have 4 children: Calvin, Katelynn, Blake & Noah. We also have a cat Maggie and a dog  named Meatball.

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!
