Steve Muzio

Senior Pastor

The goodness and providence of God brought Steve and Melanie together from different sides of the country, and very different background. Steve grew up a military brat with roots in California and Melanie a southern belle with roots in Alabama. Steve did not grow up in a Christian home; Melanie’s family were faithful church attenders. Steve and Melanie met in High School and shortly thereafter Steve came to faith in the Savior.  A relationship developed thereafter and culminated in marriage in 1983 after Melanie graduated from Belhaven College.

Steve graduated a year later and ministry life began thereafter.  Steve worked full time as Director of Youth Ministries in Mississippi and the Atlanta, Georgia area while also attempting to attend seminary part time.  He graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary in 1992 and accepted a call to be assistant pastor in Dalton Georgia, again working with youth.  A couple of years later Steve moved into a solo pastor role serving the Lord’s Church in Alabama, California and then in Iowa before accepting the call to serve the Savior and the saints at Hazelwood.

The Muzio’s have three grown children with their spouses and seven grandchildren.
