Steven Garber comes to Regent College most recently from his role as Principal of The Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture in Washington, D.C. Dr. Garber’s conviction that faith must be held together with every part of life has led him to engage deeply in a variety of contexts. He is an advisor and consultant for a diverse range of businesses, foundations, and educational institutions including Demdaco Corporation, Mars Corporation, Murdock Trust, Blood:Water Mission, and Telos Group. His long commitment to the conviction that culture is upstream from politics led him to contribute to the book Get Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalog and inspired him to participate in the founding of Wedgwood Circle. Dr. Garber's most recent book is Visions of Vocation: Common Grace for the Common Good. A native of the great valleys of Colorado and California, Steve is married to Meg. They have five adult children whose own callings have taken them all over the world.
