Pastor Reginald Steele is the Founder and Senior Pastor of Kingdom in the Valley Christian Church, a ministry dedicated to building God's Kingdom one family at a time. His teaching and preaching are both practical and powerful, encouraging men and women of God to live up to their full potential in Christ. Under his leadership, KVCC is considered one of the fastest growing churches in the metropolitan Phoenix area. Over 10,000 people of all races, ages, and backgrounds call KVCC their church home.
Raised in the church as a "preacher's kid" Pastor Steele was able to build a long-lasting foundation that is evident today. He faithfully served as his parents' church in Phoenix, AZ as an ordained Minister, Elder, and Assistant Pastor. In January of 2005, Reginald was installed as the Pastor and Founder of Kingdom in the Valley Christian Church. His first church service was held in a hall at a local indoor swap mart where 93 people sat on mixed-matched chairs to hear the young preacher.
After several months, an additional service was added and KVCC continued to grow until a move had to be made. The church of 300 transitioned across the street to an elementary school and began to have service in the cafeteria. After the first year, 1,000 people had joined the congregation and church services had to move into the school gym. Currently the church campus sees thousands of members attending one of the five services offered weekly in Phoenix, AZ. Affectionately known in the local community, Pastor Steele is the recipient of the "I Have A Dream Award" by the Northwest Black History Committee of Peoria, AZ and was the 2010 "Pastor of the Year" in the state of Arizona.
Pastor Reginald received an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity from St. Thomas Bible College Jacksonville, FL in April 2009. He is regularly sought out as a guest speaker for local churches and faithfully ministers to the men of Teen Challenge (a drug rehabilitation treatment center) monthly.
Pastor Steele is the executive producer of 'Making a Difference', a television program seen locally on AZTV every week. He is also the founder and host of Kingdom Explosion, an annual conference that attracts nationally known speakers to impart into the lives of those who live in the valley of the sun. Pastor Steele has been featured on national Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and is a regular host for local TBN.
Dr. Steele has been married to his high school sweetheart, Kelley Steele for over 19 years. He is a dedicated father to their five children Isaiah, Mariah, Stella, Isaac, and Ira.
