Steve Carter is a pastor, speaker, author, podcast host, sports enthusiast, and the former lead teaching pastor of Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago.
Steve’s passion is to bring Jesus into everything he does. A gifted teacher, Steve spends his days crafting sermons, messages, blog posts, and books to encourage people in their walk with Christ. He describes his work as humbling and vulnerable—a soul-baring process that keeps him dependent, expectant, and grounded in Christ. He lives in Phoenix, AZ, with his wife, Sarah, and their two kids.
Steve hosts the Craft & Character podcast where he helps people get better at the art of communication while ensuring their character always leads the way. Steve also co-hosts one of the top sports podcasts, The Home Team podcast, with NFL players Trey Burton and Sam Acho, which unpacks the intersection between faith, culture, sports, and family. His latest book, The Thing Beneath The Thing is now available wherever books are sold.
