Executive Director

Steve Blom

Steve first became familiar with the work of Bright Promise Fund in 2015 while serving in development and on the board of two Bright Promise network schools.  He saw firsthand the impact Bright Promise had on network schools through financial support, professional collaboration and mutual encouragement.

Steve acutely understands the essential mission a Bright Promise school fulfills in their community, as well as the challenges inherent in working that mission out.  He is committed to ensuring Bright Promise is faithful in supporting this work throughout Chicagoland.  His focus is to connect the stories of transformation at our network schools with the generosity of supporters and friends who value the work of Christ-centered urban education.

Steve and his wife Sally live with their three children in South Holland, IL.  Prior to his work in Chrisitan education, he served in church and community development organizations throughtout the South suburbs of Chicago.  They attend Emmanuel Christian Reformed Church.
B.A. Theology, Dordt College
M.A. Missions, Calvin Theological Seminary

"The work of Christ-centered education amongst the complexities of an urban environment is challenging, necessary and good.  It is both an immense joy and responsibility to serve these schools throughout the city, and to bear witness to God's continuous and overwhelming providence as he calls us into this work, together."
