Steve Rose is a seven-time author, best known for his one-of-a-kind, feel-good book Leap of Faith: God Must Be a Packer Fan. It is historic in that it is the only book to ever combine a professional sports team and faith.

Over the past twenty-five years he has spent over 20,000 hours in research in the field of purpose, personal development, and potential. Currently he tries to spend at least two and a half hours daily in study. Along with this wife Charlene, this includesBible study, devotionals, listening to educational and inspirational audio recordings, and watching inspirational DVDs and appropriate television.

Since 1996, Steve has presented his message of hope and encouragement to thousands of people, doing over 200 Peanut Butter Promise seminars, webinars, keynotes, and other presentations for groups, on campuses and for global-leading corporate brands that include: Kimberly-Clark, American Family Insurance, McDonalds, Oshkosh Truck Corporation, Postal Express, Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, Semex, and The Salvation Army. One of Charlene and his greatest passions is to speak to audiences.

He has also produced various television shows including the weekly Leap of Faith show that aired in 1998-’99, as well as a thirteen-week national series called Coincidence or Godincidence in 2013. Along with Charlene he produced the powerful half-hour documentary Only 16: Tragedy of 2 Billys in 2017.
