We will be presenting “The Great Professor Steiner” for a fun morning … your children will have a fantastic time!
Meet “The Professor”
Meet Steve Steiner who goes by the stage name “Professor Steiner.” He has always loved to perform magic and illusion shows. Steve started performing magic at the age of 11 when he assisted a friend with a sixth grade classroom magic show. His interest and skill in magic grew and soon he was performing at various local churches, scout troops, birthday parties, and other local venues.
He continued doing his magic through his college years at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri. On several occasions he teamed up to provide magic shows for special university events.
Steve graduated from Southwest Baptist University in 1975. It was there that he met his wife, Celia. The two have been married since 1976 and live in the home they built in Blue Springs, Missouri, on Chicago Street in 1979.
Following Steve’s graduation from college, magic took a backstage role to his other endeavors and interests. In 1979, after having learned the electrical trade from his father, he started his own electrical company, Paragon Electric, which he managed for several years. In 1982 he began a wholesale and retail fireworks business, Lighthouse Fireworks, enabling many local charitable organizations in their fundraising efforts. Steve and Celia started Midwestern Christian Academy, a K-12th grade private school, in 1987, and served as the school administrator for 14 years.
Steve is the creator and man behind the annual Chicago Street Christmas Lighting Display.
For over 20 years, the neighborhood display has involved over 55 houses along its three-street route, drawing an estimated 30,000 to 50,000 spectators each year. The Christmas scenes, many of which are animated, depict the life of Christ in lights.
Over the past 15 years, the display has brought in an estimated $250,000 for local charities. He was named “Blue Springs Citizen of the Year” in 1994 for his work with the Christmas lighting display.
In April of 2002 Steve was elected to the Blue Springs City Council and two years later elected as Blue Springs Mayor. His hobbies and interests include video editing, computers, sports, and performing magic shows. Steve can also be seen officiating junior and senior high school volleyball games during the fall and winter months.
Shortly after becoming mayor, Steve’s interest in magic perked once again after he was asked to be the keynote speaker at several local 5th grade D.A.R.E. graduations. He currently performs a variety of shows for children and adults in and around the Kansas City area. He is a member of The International Brotherhood of Magicians and The Society of American Magicians.
As the organizer and originator of the Chicago Street Christmas Lighting display, Steve was named The Outstanding Citizen of the Year and presented with an award at the Blue Springs Chamber of Commerce 2009 Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet. As an electrician, businessman, volunteer and creator of the popular Christmas display,
Steve’s steady efforts over the last 30 years has attracted 70,000 people last year and more than 2 million people since it’s beginning in 1980. The contributions accepted for the display annually raises more than $20,000 for local charities.
Catch the latest interview by Pastor Mark on Positively Blue Springs!
Our first ever “Super Silly Sunday” was a huge success! Ms. Yvonne Patterson, the owner of “Wings of Love” came to FaithPlace on September 31st, bringing her birds with her. From a Cockatoo riding a bike on a guide wire, to a Blue & Gold McCaw spelling the word “GRACE,” to “Swoop” the Owl flying through the room over the heads of the children to land on its perch, Ms. Yvonne truly entertained us all with the help of her fine feathered friends. The program that she brought to FaithPlace is called “Birds of Faith”. While the birds show off their crazy and funny skills, she through the Word of God connected the birds to God and their role in his creation. While the entertainment factor was wonderful the message that we received from God’s Word was even greater. This was a wonderful opportunity to reach in, reach out, and reach up. I wonder what or who will be at our next “Super Silly Sunday”?
During our 10:00 a.m. service in FaithPlace on September 30th, Kindergarten through 5th Grade will be enjoying a fun avian Bible study where birds skate, talk, play basketball, spell and more! You won’t want to miss this exciting Sunday morning.
