Steven (Steve) W. Willis was ordained in 1995 to serve as pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Woodruff, SC. and is in his twenty-third year of ordained ministry in the Presbyterian Church (USA). He has also served as solo pastor of congregations in Cincinnati, Washington State and Virginia.  Steve currently serves congregations as an interim pastor, seeking to strengthen churches in transition and help churches through the process of beginning a new chapter in ministry.  He has done leadership development for congregations in Presbyterian, Episcopal, and United Church of Christ denominations, as well as leading session, board and congregational retreats for numerous churches.  He also writes in different capacities for the PC(USA), internet magazines and has published a book with the Alban Institute.

Steve brings a warm, energetic spirit to his work and has a deep love for the church in which he was raised as a child. Parishioners have described some of his personal qualities as a careful pastoral listener, an encouraging and positive attitude and a hopeful and motivating Christian person to be around.  Steve is married to Amy Merrill who is also an ordained Presbyterian minister and a professor a Lynchburg College.  Together, they have two children, Nate and Cate, and one yellow labrador and live in the the town of Bedford. 


We are thankful for Steves willingness to serve as interim pastor here at New Dublin during this time of transition.
