On Wednesday, November 29, I welcomed Pastor Steve Smail and his wife, Sharon, to Lansing. Pastor Smail offered an inspiring prayer before Senate session began. Pastor Smail joined the Lighthouse Baptist Church of Plainwell in 2005. Before being chosen as the Senior Pastor in March of 2014, he served as the Associate Pastor, Youth Pastor, and Director of the Bus and Visitation Ministries for the church. Pastor Smail’s devotion to his faith, congregation, and community is truly inspiring, and it was an honor to have him join us at the Capitol.
