Steve Trefz is an ordained elder in the United Methodist church, a member of Fusion United Methodist Church in Mitchell, SD, and an adjunct faculty member at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, Dakota Wesleyan University, and the United Methodist Church Course of Study.

He has a passion for the church, for helping people discern their calls, and for leadership development.  As a scholar, his interests and expertise include congregational leadership, a Wesleyan view of theology and ecclesiology, spiritual gifts and the ministry of all persons, and social research methodologies.  He loves sports of all varieties, actively participating in music, watching movies with his family, losing in board games to his family, and constantly discerning the call God placed on his heart many years ago!
