Steven Yoes, the founding and lead pastor of Citymark Church, is a passionate and gifted Christian teacher.
Steven's first call and passion is leading and pastoring Citymark Church, in League City, Texas. With an international ministry spanning more than twenty years, Steven teaches the Bible each week with keen insight, relevance and humor, and is also known for his musical gifting in leading dynamic praise and worship. He is committed to the local church and its influence in the city and the world as Christ's primary tool to shape and reach the culture.
As an extension of the WorldReach missions ministry of Citymark Church, Steven teaches regularly on television, sharing the life-changing message of Jesus’ grace on four continents—including Africa, Europe, Asia, & North America. These broadcasts impact millions, with a special emphasis on reaching highly Islamic regions with the gospel of Jesus Christ, resulting in incredible testimonies of countless numbers coming to know Christ and being baptized.
Citymark's WorldReach also includes conferences throughout Europe and the Middle East, where Pastor Steven equips and encourages other pastors and leaders of the persecuted, underground church in nations where Christianity is marginalized or illegal.
Steven completed his Masters in Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary, and also holds a second degree in Christianity and Music. Steven and his wife, Maya, married in 1995 and have been blessed with two beautiful daughters, and two furry four-legged family members named Samson and Heidi.
