Steve Cornelius
Boys Boarding School Email Address

Steve is the Primary Counselor for the Red Hawk team. Steve joined the team of Cherokee Creek in August of 2015 and brought along great skills from across the country! He is a graduate of Toccoa Falls College with a degree in Youth Ministry. Steve spent 16 years as a youth pastor. He spent four years in Ft. Myers, FL and then moved from the frying pan to the freezer of northern Wisconsin for 12 more years of work with teens. Along the way, he managed to find time for 11 years of coaching youth volleyball!

Steve joined our team as flex staff and worked second and third shifts as needed. He was then promoted to a floor manager position where he helped to manage and facilitate the daily ins and outs of life at Cherokee Creek.

When not at CCBS, Steve loves being with his family. He has been married to his wife Sarah for over 20 years, has a son in college and a daughter in high school. Some of their favorite times together include cooking amazing food for friends and family and taking adventures together … whether near or far.

Steve is looking forward to working with the students and families of CCBS. He enjoys seeing students be stretched to achieve levels of success that they did not believe possible.
