Dr. Stephen R. Phinney:


My primary objective is to equip individuals through the believer's identity in Christ - all based on the message of identification with Christ in His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension. My passion is to deliver this message to a worldwide audience by making use of the internet, live presentations, writing, podcasting & through the effective use of media.


Pastor Steve is passionate and dedicated in unfolding the Biblical truths surrounding the believer's identity in Christ. Every sermon and event hosted by XL is embedded in these Truths.  He and his wife (Jane) are dedicated to the institution of marriage, multi-generational family development, and local multi-generational family church development.
