Steven Smith

Position: President

Steve has been the Rodgers Representative in Chicago for 41 years. He has designed/installed nearly 100 pipe organs and over 850 electronic organs during his tenure. Steve served on the Rodgers Executive Panel during the development of Rodgers’ Digital Organs in the late 80’s. He continues to have input into the design of instruments to meet music ministry needs.

Being an accomplished organist, his gifts are well suited to assist you in purchasing an instrument. He has served as Music Director for very “traditional” churches and also served as the Principal Organist for Elmbrook Church (in a “blended” worship environment) in Wisconsin for seven years. He is currently the Principal Organist for First Park Congregational Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan where he plays an 81 rank pipe organ and a Rodgers/Moller Hybrid organ (in the chapel).  Steve has played with the Elgin Symphony Orchestra, and MYSO (Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra).  His diverse musical background is a great asset in consulting with churches of all types with regard to selecting the “right” instrument(s) to meet any worship style.
