He was keynote speaker and taught at several Tri-State Praise and Worship Conferences in Cincinnati, Oh. He also played drums on "Let's Have Church" and "I Give You Jesus", from the Evangelist Network Video Series, with executive producer Don Gessner. In  December 2005, Steve played drums for the Hope For The Nations Tour to Cardiff, Wales, London, England and Amsterdam, Holland and in 2007, Steve traveled to Nicaragua, where he spent time with the band Esperonza.
During this time, Steve continued to study different genres of music, from gospel to jazz, classical to blues, electronic to world music, and Latin to hip hop. This fusion of spirituality and musical study resulted in the 2009 self released Pure Thang, Steve's first album in over 20 years. In it, you hear the discovery of new ideas mixed with the musical legacy of those that came before him.
