Cycling Accident

Dear Friends,

On August 6th Steve had a cycling accident.  While on vacation, Steve suffered a fall on his left shoulder and side.  Thankfully, a sheriff was just across the street and quickly called for an ambulance.  The X-rays and CT scan at the emergency room revealed a broken clavicle, 7 fractured ribs and a slight collapse in Steve’s left lung.  He was held overnight at the hospital for observation and released the next morning when further X-rays showed that the lung was performing normally.

Upon returning home to Tennessee, Steve made an appointment with an orthopedist.  After more X-rays we were told that Steve’s injuries would require surgery.  He will need a steel plate to repair the broken and shattered clavicle, as well as work to repair torn ligaments in the shoulder.  Surgery is set for August 22nd.

Would you pray for wisdom, grace, healing, and a listening ear during these days?  Our circumstances do not alter our Heavenly Father’s character.  He is good and we feel His loving-kindness moment by moment.  Your love and prayers mean more to us than you can know.


Steve and SGM

The Lord knows the timing and the plan for our lives. So thankful that there was someone available to assist you during this time. He is every present in our time of need. For now…Rest the Lord is near…Be still and know that He is God.

    Dear Mr. Steve Green:
    I was sorry to hear about your cycling accident and surgery. Our family is praying for you and a quick recovery. I am a 12 years old boy who has had a lot of medical problems these last four months: I am hospitalized for almost a week and now have a feeding tube to help me eat and heal. I want to thank you for your ministry, as your music has truly been a help and blessing during my own situation. I hope and pray that you will be better soon as we look forward to see you again next time you come to Pennsylvania. You are my favorite Christian artist.

    We were so looking forward to your concert in Maryville, TN. So sorry it has been cancelled, but Lord willing, we’ll be able to attend someplace else. Praying for you, Steve. Your music has been a favorite of mine for a very long time! I was on my way to sing a concert at a church once, heard your song “People Need the Lord.” I was so compelled by the song, that I found the track on the way, learned it and sang it that night. Quite the feat in the 80′s! A special anointing is on your life and ministry. I hope you’re doing well, and taking it easy!

  • Dan

    We pray a speedy recovery! From all your bros at CBMC

  • George Schaffer
