Rev. Stein is the former pastor at Faith Lutheran Church in Cambridge, where he served from 2000 until his retirement. He was also the dean of the Boston Metro Conference of the New England Synod of the ELCA and has served more recently as a pastor helping churches in transition.
Raised an Episcopalian, he was unchurched for 25 years. During that time he was a businessperson, working for his own and other companies in the computer industry. Helping as a volunteer in prisons led him on a convoluted path to ordained ministry. He is particularly interested in the future of the church. He works with a non-profit he started a few years ago to help troubled churches deal with property. He is a 1996 graduate of HDS and lives in Cambridge..
