For most of his life, Steve has been involved in music ministry at some level. This has resulted in a wide variety of opportunities and experiences. But when all of that is stripped away, what remains is a heart that loves to worship God, and hands that express that worship through intimate piano music. Despite the hundreds and hundreds of "worship bands" making their sound heard in churches and festivals around the world, Steve Sensenig captures the essence of intimate and personal worship with solo piano.
Despite the hundreds and hundreds of "worship bands" making their sound heard in churches and festivals around the world, Steve Sensenig captures the essence of intimate and personal worship with solo piano. Whether it's a CD used by a single person praying in their home, or leading an entire congregation of people into an intimate encounter with Jesus Christ, Steve's music touches people of all ages and provides a soothing soundtrack for the spiritual journey of any individual.
Steve began playing the piano at the age of 3, with the encouragement and help of his mother and older sisters. Through his early years, Steve learned quite a bit from the music books that were available to him, and he quickly began to excel in classical music.
By the time Steve reached high school, he was setting his sights on a career as a classical concert pianist. At the age of 13, he began playing regularly for the school choirs, church services, etc. Throughout high school, Steve gathered numerous awards and recognitions for his playing, and immediately after graduating from high school, Steve released a recording of his own arrangements of hymns. That initial recording (released only on cassette) quickly sold over 1,000 copies in local churches and bookstores.
Steve attended Philadelphia Biblical University, where he graduated with a B.Mus in classical piano performance as well as a B.S. in Bible. It was during his college years, however, that the dream of being a concert pianist began to wane, and a desire for ministry set in. Steve recorded another collection of hymn arrangements, and often ministered in concert in different churches with his instrumental worship.
