Steve & Suanne Collins
I am a Madison native and a graduate of Memorial High School where I played basketball for four years. Suanne, my lovely wife, was born on the west coast and grew up on the east coast. We met when her family moved to Madison in the fall of her senior year in high school. We’ve been married since 1983. For 20 years we lived in New Jersey and Indiana. We returned to Madison in 2007. Our two sons are grown and married and we have 3 precious grandkids.
Throughout my career I have been involved in youth ministry. When I see students, I see a mission field. That passion has been the focus of my professional life. Suanne is retired from a long careet in the banking industry, is a nationally certified corporate trainer and she is a professional jewelry designer and craftsman, as well as a contract seamstress.
FCA has afforded an opportunity to combine two great passions, the Gospel of Christ and UW competitive athletics. As a kid growing up in Madison the Badgers held a special place in my heart. I loved all of the teams – football basketball, wrestling, fencing, hockey, cross-country, baseball, track and field, rowing. If the athletes were wearing the “Block W” I was a fan. As a Campus Chaplain I now have the privilege to walk through life with Badger coaches and athletes as well as high school huddle leaders throughout the greater Madison area.
I would appreciate any opportunity to describe for you the ways in which FCA can serve you, your team, campus and community. Contact me at 608.630.5633 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
