Steve Weinkamer is the founding member of Portage Faith United Methodist Church’s praise band Solid Ground. He started playing as the solo guitarist for the church’s contemporary worship service in 2002, and is currently the praise band director. Solid Ground helps lead 9:30 am Sunday worship.
Steve describes worship music as “blended,” a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary music. Members of Solid Ground enjoy playing a wide variety of musical styles – from older hymns, to contemporary Christian, to original compositions, to traditional hymns in contemporary settings. Currently the band consists of 6 members who love sharing their musical talents for the glory of God each week. The band is always on the lookout for others who wish to share their musical talents in church.
Steve actively serves in church leadership, and is currently chairperson of the Staff Parish Relations Committee.
