Steve & Trish Bielstein

Staff ID: 348

Steve and Trish Bielstein lived in Victoria, Texas for most of their lives and currently reside in Pasadena, California. They have served on staff at the Perspectives National Office since November, 2015. They have been married for 37 years and have four grown children and two grandchildren.

Steve and Trish both trusted Jesus as their Savior in November, 1984. After a couple of years of intense spiritual growth, Steve began serving as a deacon and eventually was asked to serve on the elder board, which he did for several terms. During one of those terms, as board chairman, he helped merge his church with another, a feat which rarely happens in our independent thinking society. Trish has served teaching children and in hospitality, as well as working as a church secretary for a time. After about 25 years, they decided to help another pastor/friend plant a new church with the vision of reaching those who would normally “never step foot inside of a church.”

Steve has also served on mission boards and led mission committees and outreach ministries. He has had the privilege of teaching at almost every level, and has served as director of Christian education, small group leader, small groups coach and advisor, and youth group leader, as well as preaching on numerous occasions. He has also enjoyed leading a drama ministry and has served in various organizational and administrative roles.

Twenty years after becoming a Christian, Steve took Perspectives at the undergraduate level in 2003 and Trish completed the course in 2004. Soon after taking the class, Steve served for several years as a local Perspectives class Coordinator and Grader. He has also served as an Instructor with Perspectives, which included travel to Sri Lanka in 2004 to work with a team to teach a Perspectives Intensive at Colombo Theological Seminary.

Steve currently serves as a Project Manager: developing online tools, training resources, and organizational documentation. He also serves as an Online Class Administrator, Coordinator, and Grader. Trish faithfully serves in the Perspectives finance office and helps lead the local community food pantry.

As a result of learning from the Perspectives course and numerous other studies, Steve has also written a book on the subject of God’s purpose for the expansion of His glory to all peoples called, Viral God.
