Stephen D. Simonich, MD originally became involved in FinD after his small group, the GAIMers (God Alone Is Mercy) was established in 2015 and then adopted into FinD shortly thereafter. When FinD developed a Discipleship Council, he eagerly agreed to become the representative from his group. Soon after joining the Discipleship Council, he was impressed with the FinD goal of promoting one of it’s core missions of fostering fellowship toward discipleship by developing volunteerism and helping others – in a sense using active theology to encourage social endeavors and moving from the classroom to the street. He is an active member of St. John Vianney Catholic Church and proud father to Caroline, Luke, and Anna. He is married to Jeanie Simonich, a native Houstonian, and loves being around his family. After graduating from Klein High School, he attended the University of Notre Dame where he majored in Biology and Theology. He then attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. Following medical school, he completed an orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville. It was there that he developed an interest in sports medicine and completed a prestigious fellowship at the Southern California Orthopaedic Institute. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas Houston McGovern Medical School, practicing on the West side of Houston. Ultimately, Steve sees FinD as a great example of the Body of Christ, inspiring its members to grow into more loving friends, brothers, sisters, sons, and fathers.
We are prayerfully considering the expansion of our board as we move forward in this ministry.
