our staff


Steven Leuice



It’s my honor and joy to serve God’s family here at Mother Lode Church. To do that effectively, God blessed me with an amazing wife, Angela, and our four incredible children, Jessica, Kurtis, Kristin, and Ashley. Our decades of foreign missionary work and my previous pastoral service here in California and Florida provide a unique and rich ministry background.

I am passionate about teaching the Bible and helping people discover and pursue God’s design through His Gospel while together we fall more in love with Jesus.

Henry Blackaby wrote: “Watch to see where God is working and join him” (John 5:17). God is doing a great work at MLC. Come lock arms with us as we endeavor to be living examples of a loving God transforming lives, building families, and impacting our community through the transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ.
