Cedar Grove is excited to welcome Pastor Steve Witmer as our Transitional Coach. In this role, Steve will help guide the pastoral team, staff and congregation through this season of change, including the selection of our next Lead Pastor.

One of Steve’s priorities is meeting with members and hearing from everyone who would like to connect with him about the transition. If you would like to spend some time with Steve to talk about the past, present and future of Cedar Grove, please email him directly at switmer@the-grove.net


More about Steve Witmer

Steve Witmer and and his wife Becky are warm, authentic individuals who are very easy to get to know. A lifetime of ministry experience has given them a compassionate concern for the emotional and spiritual health of pastors and their families. They have a genuine love for ministry leaders and are known as "Papa" and "Nana" to many. Steve and Becky Witmer have served together for more than 40 years in a variety of ministry roles. After 5 years with YWAM, they served in roles such as Senior Pastor, Missionary Director, and Pastoral Care Coordinator for their associated network of churches.

Sensing that they were entering a new season of life after 14 years as Senior Pastors in their church, Steve and Becky transitioned to the role of Associate Pastors for the same congregation. This role enabled them to invest time and energy into both missions and the care of pastors and emerging leaders. In the subsequent years they have served a variety of churches in the capacity of Interim/ Transitional Pastors. 

In 2021 they celebrated 46 wonderful years of marriage. They are blessed with two married daughters and five delightful grandchildren who supply them with consistent joy and an unending supply of great stories!
