Rev. Dr. Steven Koski

I am at First Presbyerian because I am crazy blessed to get to serve an extraordinary, loving, compassionate, brave, creative, mission-hearted, curious and fun community of faith. And for some reason they put up with me.

Before working here I was cheering loudly for the Chicago Blackhawks. Oh yeah, I was also serving as Senior Pastor at First Presbyterian Church of LaGrange, a western suburb of Chicago.

I love being constantly reminded that I am one lucky guy to have married “up” to Laurie and to be blessed to be dad to two amazing young men, Jacob and Jonah. I love yoga. Although the people next to me in yoga class look like pretzels in class while I look and move like a block of cement. I love walking, especially the many beautiful trails of Bend, with my trusted companion Zeke, a shepherd/husky mix. I love, love, love, love sports. My dream job would be a sports talk show host sharing my limitless sports wisdom with the rest of the world. I love scrabble, a good book, U2, single malt scotch, theater and ballet (not necessarily in that order).
