Steve Wingfield

Steve Wingfield

CEO, Victory Weekend Ministries

Steve Wingfield has spent over 45 years in ministry spreading a message of hope across the globe. Steve holds degrees from Eastern Mennonite College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and has an honorary doctorate from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.

“I’m very excited about the Lodestar program and I’m honored to be a part of it. The 48 principles will make any one of us not only a better person but also a better leader. This is really a powerful tool for families, church leaders, business leaders, and anyone striving to grow spiritually.”

He has led evangelistic events in 16 states and 17 countries and is the author of several books. He is also co-author of the best-selling Come to the Table and Share the Bounty books.

Luke Weaver

Luke Weaver

Director of Lodestar Guidance

Luke’s first Lodestar Guidance customer, an excavation company president, said, “I am a simple person and Lodestar Guidance is simple and easy to use.” Since then, numerous businesses, fire departments, and church groups have subscribed to the Lodestar Guidance program.  For Luke, his most consequential customer has been a southern Delaware after-school club for minority children, which teaches life skills and prepares students for continued education after graduation.    As Paul Weaver says, “Without character, we will never reach our full potential.”

As a boy asking forgiveness for stolen apples, Luke learned the value of character and integrity at a young age.  For his mother and father, right decisions and choices far outweigh anything gained in this life.  When Lodestar Guidance was first introduced in 2015, he immediately saw the benefits for businesses, individuals, and church groups.  Luke’s background in teaching, ministry, and development fills him with passion for a character transformation in our culture, one business, group, or family at a time. 

Luke Weaver first met Steve Wingfield in 1996, and they began a ministry partnership in the summer of 1998.  They have partnered together in evangelistic outreaches, retreat ministry, and other faith-based partnerships.   Luke and his wife, Sylvia, have two adult children and four grandchildren.
