Interview with Steve Demme:

 

Steve and his wife Sandra have been married for 31 years. They have been blessed with four sons: Isaac, 31; Ethan, 29; Joseph, 26; and Johnny, 23. With God’s help, they have have all been home educated.  He is the founder of MathUSee and has served on various boards including Joni and Friends for Eastern PA and Christian Freedom International.

Steve’s desire is to strengthen, teach, encourage, and affirm parents and families as they pursue the Biblical model for the Christian home. Having spent years working with youth as a school teacher (public and Christian); as a pastor and youth leader in a church; and as a counselor and camp director at summer camps. He is absolutely convinced that the single most significant influence in a child’s life is that of his parents. Mentors and coaches have a valuable and influential role in the life of today’s youth, but Mom and Dad can’t be replaced. You may support the home, but you can’t replace it.
