Leadership and Integrity Award 2019 – Steve Dick
Born and raised in Reedley, CA, Steve Dick is the President and CEO of Inspiration Cruises & Tours.
In 1971 he married his high school sweetheart Ruth––just 3 days before beginning his 23 year career at the Fresno Bible House, where he quickly moved from janitorial and shipping to become manager, overseeing all operations of the store. Steve and Ruth became the owners of Inspiration in 1994, and since then have dedicated their lives to serving the ministry clients and faithful passengers all over the globe. In this time they have expanded the company from 1,000 passengers annually to over 14,000 annually and now serve hundreds of ministry clients. Their daughter Stephanie Smith serves alongside them.
As an active member of Fresno Evangelical Free Church (now The Bridge) for forty years, Steve served on the church board for twenty. He now serves on the board for Fresno Pacific University and the Fresno/Clovis Prayer Breakfast.
