From Steve Tuttle’s radical religious conversion through his full-ﬂedged ordination as an American Baptist minister, Wednesdays is the story of one man’s voyage in and out of the Christian faith.
Candidly sharing his struggles of a doubt so strong it eventually leads him to leave the ministry, Tuttle details the enormous task of rebuilding his life and shares how he ﬁnally found meaning without God.
Believer or nonbeliever, whatever port you choose to call home, Wednesdays is bound to make you contemplate your own voyage in life.
After wandering through his teenager years with no goals or purpose in life, in 1974 Steve experienced a conversion to Jesus that altered his course in life. With a new and intense excitement to serve God, he pursued the ministry at full speed, graduating from Paciﬁc Christian College (today, Hope University) and Fuller Theological Seminary. Shortly thereafter, Steve became an ordained pastor with American Baptist Churches USA. After serving numerous churches, he was commissioned in 1988 to start Cornerstone Community Church, a new church in Southern California. Ironically, it was during that time that serious doubts arose within his faith, resulting in his leaving the ministry and the faith altogether.
Within a year of leaving Cornerstone, Steve earned his teaching credentials and has successfully been teaching for nearly thirty years. In 2012 he was bestowed the honor of becoming San Bernardino County’s teacher of the year.
Steve lives in Southern California with Cathy, his high school sweetheart and wife of forty years, and their severely disabled son, Jason. He has one other son, Dan, and three grandsons.
As Steve prepares for retirement from teaching, he is perfecting his boating and ﬁshing skills, reading like a machine, and honing his writing skills.
