Steven A. Kreloff is the speaker on Verse by Verse Radio, and the Pastor/Teacher at Lakeside Community Chapel in Clearwater, Florida. He joined the staff at the Chapel in 1976 and became Pastor/Teacher in 1981. The emphasis of his ministry, from the beginning, has been the expository teaching of the Bible. Those who know him best say his teaching is well balanced between the true meaning of any biblical text and its proper application for today.
Pastor Kreloff is a Jewish Christian who, while a student at the University of South Florida, received Jesus as Messiah, Savior. After a time of adjustment to his decision, Steve felt it would be wise to consider furthering his education in Chicago at the Moody Bible Institute. It was known that they had a well-known Jewish Studies program.
Pastor Kreloff went to Chicago and, while completing the requirements for graduation from the Institute, met Michele, a student from Minneapolis, who later became his wife. Together they have ministered at Lakeside Community Chapel and made an impact on the Clearwater area. Lakeside Community Chapel’s emphasis is sound Bible teaching, missions, and evangelism.
Pastor Kreloff is also a graduate of the Tampa Bay Theological Seminary which later became Dallas Theological Seminary’s Tampa extension campus. He has been a contributing editor for the magazine Israel My Glory and has written for other magazines including Masterpiece and Tabletalk. Pastor Kreloff has authored several books, including God’s Plan for Israel: A Study of Romans 9-11, Timeless Truths from a Faithful Shepherd, The Pleasures of Marriage: An Exposition of the Song of Solomon, and Expository Preaching and Teaching.
Pastor Kreloff serves on the Board of Aurora Ministries, and he and Mrs. Kreloff have also ministered extensively to correctional chaplains through seminars across the nation, as well as teaching seminary students at the Italian Bible Institute in Italy.
They are the parents of three children who love and serve Christ. Pastor Kreloff is an enthusiastic runner and has completed several marathons.
