Rev. Stephen Fetter -- Minister

Steve 2

Steve is a graduate of Vancouver School of Theology (1987) and has been minister at Forest Hill United Church since November 2002. These days he keeps thinking about ways to connect with people who describe themselves as "spiritual but not religious." He has a passion for cutting through traditional language and ritual to find ways to help people live out a spirituality that helps us get through the ordinary ups and downs of life.

When he's not working, Steve enjoys gardening, fixing his car, renovating his house, and messing around with computers. He has three children -- all grown now and out of the house, so he and his wife Linda are enjoying having time together!

Steve also works for the General Council Office of The United Church of Canada, where he designs and manages continuing education programs for clergy and other church leaders across the country. You can read more about his work there at the website he created: www.united-in-learning.com.
