Christian Apologist, Preacher, Author, Steve Mark Urick, Gone Too Soon
Steve Urick was raised a Roman Catholic. He was 21 years old when he heard the Gospel at a Billy Graham Crusade in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, his hometown. Steve became a Believer that day. He heard the Gospel preached, loud and clear.
On fire, Steve began an evangelism outreach four months after. He shared the Bible with students at Arizona State University. In 1980, he returned to Milwaukee and had the burden to preach the Gospel to Roman Catholics. Through this “catholic outreach,” he wrote a gospel tract for Catholics.
A few years after, Steve attended an extension class in Milwaukee through the Moody Bible Institute. He studied theology and evangelism. He also served as a staff evangelist at Milwaukee Bible Church.
A prolific writer
It was there he wrote 75 gospel and apologetic tracts later compiled into booklets; then unto a book, “The Truth About Roman Catholicism: What Every Catholic Need to Know.” Steve was able to write and publish 14 Christian books.
An amazing feat for someone who lived ordinarily to serve the Lord. His passion was evangelism, outreach, and apologetics.
