Steve Stern Home With Jesus

On Saturday afternoon, July 18th, church family member, Steve Stern, went home to be with Jesus after a four-year battle with ALS. Steve was a Pastor at Westside Church in Bend, Oregon for many years as well as a local businessman.

Steve was a man after God’s own heart and his legacy will continue through the lives of his wife, Bo Stern, his four children and two grandchildren. Steve was a man who pursued Christ and lived for the Kingdom of God until the very end. His love for Jesus, people and golf won’t soon be forgotten.

A celebration of Steve’s life will be held on Friday, July 24th, at 1pm at Westside Church West Campus. The service will also be available to watch online at Parking is limited due to our back parking lot being under construction. Please carpool if possible, or park offsite and walk in. Doors open at 12pm, service at 1pm. Childcare will not be provided.


A note from the family:

Dearest Westside,

We are both happy and heartbroken to tell you our beloved Steve went to be with Jesus. He was surrounded by his family and closest friends as he entered the presence of the One he loves more than life itself. And as he entered, he discovered life he had never known – a life none of us stuck in the here and now have ever yet known. Your support through the past four years has made all the difference in our battle. We can’t express our love or gratitude enough. We love you without end.

Bo and Family
