Steve Wells

Steve has been pastor of South Main since March of 2003. Steve grew up in Lubbock, Texas. He attended Baylor University, where he earned a BA in Philosophy (1990), was a member of the first graduating class of Baylor’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary, earning a Master of Divinity summa cum laude (1997), and a Doctor of Ministry (2003), concentrating in Preaching and Worship. Steve spent the summer of 2011 as a reader at Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford. Before coming to South Main, he served as pastor of churches in Texas and Mississippi. Steve met his wife, Missy Yeary Wells, at Baylor. (fun fact: Missy’s father, Dan Yeary, was Associate Pastor at South Main when she was a child. Missy was baptized at South Main by Ken Chafin and is delighted to be back in Houston and at South Main.) Steve and Missy were married in August, 1990 and have three children – Rachel, Ben, and Joshua.
