A graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary ('96), Pastor Steve pursued further church planting training through his doctoral program at Reformed Theological Seminary (Orlando) and the pastoral coaching network of Church Leader Insights led by Dr. Nelson Searcy.

David Raih, Ruling Elder | Co-Treasurer

Spencer Mills OPC - Gowen, Michigan

David Raih was blessed to be raised by Christian parents in an Orthodox Presbyterian Church. God was faithful to His covenantal promises and David confessed Christ as his Savior and Lord while in high school. He later married his lovely wife Ruth, who was the daughter of an OPC pastor. David is a nurse by career and a ruling elder at Spencer Mills OPC in Gowen, Michigan. Spencer Mills was the first church and mission work of the OPC in the state of Michigan, begun in the 1960s. David Raih have been a member of the CHEX committee over 25 years. During that time, he has seen God bless the Orthodox Presbyterian denomination in growing the number of churches in Michigan from five to twenty, as well as in the establishment of the OPC Presbytery of Michigan & Ontario. David looks forward to continuing to serve God and to see how He uses the OPC to build His kingdom in this part of the world.


Greg Smith, his wife Karin, and their two sons joined Christ Covenant Church in Midland, Michigan in 2017. Greg became a ruling elder and clerk of session in 2021. He is a professor of ancient Mediterranean history at Central Michigan University as well as chairperson of the Department of History, World Languages, and Cultures. While he has an abiding interest in ancient languages, early church history, and the Roman empire, he is convinced that God's kingdom and church are infinitely more important, and that his identity as a child of God and follower of Christ is the one that matters most.
