Reverend Doctor Steve Schibsted

Steve is an ordained PCUSA pastor with a Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary. He has 20+ years of experience with energizing and growing church congregations, as they are brought through cycles of change.

Raised in Southern California, Steve grew up in a non-Christian household, finding his own faith in junior high school. He is married and father of two adult children. Steve presently presides over First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, as Interim Senior Pastor.
