Steve Snider was born in Clarksburg, WV in 1954. He is married to the former Dianne Hatcher and they have two children Aaron and Stephanie. Aaron is a gospel preacher and Stephanie is a school teacher and is married to a gospel preacher. Snider is a graduate of Preston Road School of Preaching. He also received a B.A. from Southeastern Biblical Institute and a M.A. from Southern Christian University.
Steve preached for the church in Barrackville, WV from 1977-1981, the Alpharetta church of Christ in Alpharetta, GA from 1981-1983, and then returned to preach for the church of Christ in Barrackville in 1983. He has been involved with West Virginia Christian Youth Camp for more than 30 years and has been making yearly mission trips to India since 1991. Steve became part of the faculty of WVSOP in its second year and has been teaching several classes ever since.
Bro. Snider believes that the WVSOP offers a wonderful opportunity for a man interested in preaching the gospel of Christ but may not feel he is able to attend a 4 year university. At WVSOP one will receive an excellent study of each book of the Bible and related studies, as well as extensive training in public speaking.
