An Interview with Steve Dennie

Yesterday, as many of you know, Steve Dennie stepped through the doors of the UB National Office and into retirement after a long and faithful 45 year career of service to the denomination. Before we let him get away, our team at the office spent time together celebrating Steve, listening to his favorite stories, and laughing a lot along the way. Personally, I have had the privilege over the last six weeks of working beside Steve, learning from him and soaking in as much denominational history as possible. In that time, I have developed a deep appreciation for his servant heart and his humble leadership.

Steve and I share a passion for storytelling, which, not-so-coincidentally, is a primary responsibility of the communications director. He has owned that responsibility and committed years to sharing the stories of others. When I stepped into this role I wanted the first story I shared to be his story. So last week I invited Steve to sit down with me for an interview. You may have seen the short clips we posted this week on our Facebook story, but now you can view the interview in its entirety below (approximately 30 minutes).



Steve, if you are reading this, let me say one more time, thank you. Thank you for serving so faithfully for so long. Thank you modeling leadership that uplifts others without drawing attention to yourself. Thank you for the intentional and grace-filled way you’ve passed the baton on to me.
