  • Steve McCoy

    Steve McCoy has been in the ministry for 35 years and is the Founding Lead Pastor of The 360 Church in Sarasota, Florida, a church he planted 13 years ago. 360 has a focused strategy that centers on building a culture of one-to-one relationships with a vision that is designed to impact the church culture by exporting the one-to-one culture.

    In addition to graduating from Southern Seminary, Steve also has a Doctorate degree in Piano Performance, coming to faith in Christ during the pursuit of becoming a concert pianist. His 25 years of piano lessons naturally embedded an appreciation for the impact of the one-to-one dynamic that is so often missing in the church culture.

    With a doctorate degree in music, his experience in the person-to-person environment in 25 years of piano lessons coupled with the Paul-Timothy model of one-to-one discipleship motivated him to take 6 years to write a one-to-one discipleship track called smallcircle. 

    The smallcircle tools are now in 22 languages and are operating on 6 continents. Named as one of the top ten recommended disciple-making tools by, smallcircle is also offered in a free mobile and web app. 

    Steve and his wife, Carrie, have two boys, ages 15 and 16.
