Steve Locke was raised by a single mom, held his first job at 10 years old and hired his first employees shortly thereafter. Helping his family make ends meet developed a strong work ethic in Steve, and family, hard work and respect for elders are core values to this day. Steve’s teenage years were filled with work but also with addiction, and grief from losing his mom in a car accident when he was 18. But thanks to the prayers of others, Steve was radically saved and instantly delivered from drugs and alcohol. His transformation gave him a passion for those suffering from addiction, and for the person working every day to get through life.
Being an entrepreneur at heart, Steve has been running a business of some kind since he was 10. From landscaping and vending machines to restaurants and general contracting, he has been leading teams for decades. His current company, Locke Buildings has been in business for 26 years in the Pacific Northwest, grossing tens of millions of dollars annually. Steve has a conviction that everyday people working everyday jobs are effective influencers for sharing the goodness of God. His desire to empower these everyday people prompted the development of Train 2 Reign, with a heart to help people discover their purpose, navigate challenges and reign in life through Christ Jesus (Rom 5:17).
Steve and Tiffany Locke have been married since 2012 and live in Oregon with their blended family of five girls ranging from 10 to 30 years old (as of 2023). The family enjoys attending Bible conferences and family events, Tiffany leads women’s Bible study groups, Steve earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology and is currently in his fifth year of Bible school. Steve is also a Certified John Maxwell Coach and a Certified John Maxwell Disc Trainer.

Vangela Roeder grew up in a Christian family who were members of a Christian Rock ‘n Roll band called Amplified Version during the 70’s. After the band, her parents went into full-time church ministry. Vangela was an All American Cheerleader and an All Star Volleyball player in high school. She attended North Central University where she met her husband Jason Roeder and graduated with a degree in education. She loves going to the beach, spending time with family, singing and traveling. Vangela and Jason were married in 1995 and have four children, Hunter, Keaton, Pierce and Precious. They have worked together as a team in youth and adult ministry for 24 years.
Jason Roeder was raised on a farm in Wisconsin where life centered around church, lots of family, good food and the Green Bay Packers. He was into all types of sports as a kid and his love of basketball resulted in an athletic scholarship that paid for his university education. Jason met Vangela in college and they married in 1995. Jason taught middle school, coached basketball, and was assistant principal at Oshkosh Christian School. He was 25 years old when God called him and Vangela into full time youth ministry starting in sunny Southern California in 2003. Jason has been youth, campus, lead, and associate pastor of several congregations over the past 20 years. He now works with Train 2 Reign in Oregon along with his wife Vangela and as a trainer and culture creator for Locke Buildings.
