Recognized as one of the top 3 leaders in the country by the 2016 John C. Maxwell Leadership Award committee, Steve Finn witnessed firsthand how God makes the impossible possible. After 12 years as a gangs special unit metro-Atlanta police officer, he and his wife felt led to full-time ministry. Following a short tenure as house parents for Eagle Ranch Childrens Home outside of Atlanta, Steve took an even greater leap. Today, he is the founder and executive director for Chestnut Mountain Ranch, a 225-acre Christ-centered home and school for boys in one of the poorest areas of the country. Cautioned that building a ministry of such magnitude in that area would be almost impossible, Steve chose to trust that God would bring the seed He had planted to harvest. Together, he and his wife, Dawn, call Chestnut Mountain Ranch home with a family too big to name.
