Elder Steve Saucer was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. He attended Patterson Co-op High School and was a graduate of Colonel White High School. He was forced to overcome many challenges growing up in the inner city, but thanks to God’s unseen protection coupled with Elder Saucer’s will to succeed, he was able to endure and outlast the harshness of poverty.
The first Sunday of November 2015 under the leading of the Holy Spirit according to the divine will of God, Elder Saucer was unctioned to establish Restoration Church! The Spirit spoke expressly to Pastor Saucer revealing to him that he had a unique ministry of Restoration and that it would be his life’s mission to rebuild, restore and revive God’s greatest creation...PEOPLE!
Restoration Church of Jesus Christ is a proud P.C.A.F. (Pentecostal Churches of the Apostolic Faith) congregation. Pastor Saucer (and all subsequent ministries) is subject and submitted to the oversight and authority of his pastor and spiritual father, the Honorable Bishop Lambert W. Gates, Sr. In 2020, Pastor Saucer was elected to serve the Tri-State Council of the PCAF as District Elder and Vice Council Chairman.
Aside from the spiritual servitude the Pastor exemplifies, he is arguably most known for his tireless efforts outside of the walls of the church. Pastor Saucer is very community driven and has impacted the lives of people beyond explanation, some whom he may never get to meet. Pastor proudly serves as the Co-Chair on the Faith Based Advisory Committee for the Gem City Market. The Pastor is the visionary of an organic grow program that will feed and sustain countless Daytonians. He is the founder of Restore Life People Development Group, a 501c3 organization with the mission to “Restore Life to the Community by Developing the People in it.” Which includes many programs such as: childcare, after school & literacy programs, aid for single mothers and helping the formerly imprisoned reacclimate to society. Pastor Saucer is affectionately referred to as “The People’s Pastor.” His heart’s desire is to win lost souls and strengthen the body of Christ through the preaching of the true and uncompromised Word of God!
Pastor Steve Saucer is the husband to Lawrensa Saucer, the father of three beautiful daughters and one handsome son.
