Pastor Stephen Louis

Born in the San Francisco Bay Area and raised in a Christian home, Pastor Stephen Louis was delivered from a self-righteous profession of faith and brought to saving faith in the Lord
Jesus Christ at the age of 25. After several years of service in his local congregation, he went on to join Sovereign Grace Baptist Church of Silicon Valley in Morgan Hill, California and enrolled in the seminary within the church in 2012. He received his training for the ministry under the tutelage and pastoral care of Dr. William R. Downing. In April 2016, he earned his Bachelor of Theology degree from Sovereign Grace Baptist Theological Seminary. Pastor Louis served his local congregation by preaching when called upon to fill the pulpit. In addition to his labors at SGBC, he preached weekly at a local rescue mission in Watsonville, California from 2016–2020. He was also sent on two missionary trips to the Philippines with FirstLove Missions in 2018 and 2019.

In December 2021, he accepted the call from SGBC to become the successor to Dr. Downing along with Co-Pastor Jim Billings. He commenced his ministry in January 2022.
Pastor Louis resides in Morgan Hill, California with his wife, Holly. They have been married for 11 years and have four children, Joshua, Madelyn, Nathaniel, and Eliana.
