Steve Grcevich

Stephen Grcevich, MD (pronounced GER-suh-vich) serves as the founder and President of Key Ministry. He  is a child and adolescent psychiatrist who combines over 25 years of knowledge gained through clinical practice and teaching with extensive research experience evaluating medications prescribed to children and teens for ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Dr. Grcevich has been a presenter at over 35 national and international medical conferences and is a past recipient of the Exemplary Psychiatrist Award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). He regularly blogs at and frequently speaks at national and international ministry conferences on mental health and spiritual development.

Steve currently serves as the President of Key Ministry, a non-profit organization that seeks to connect churches and families of children and teens with disabilities for the purpose of making disciples of Jesus Christ. He launched the ministry over 15 years ago together with other leaders from his church after observing that families served by his practice often struggled to regularly attend church because of challenges associated with the conditions for which they sought treatment. He is leading Key Ministry’s efforts to develop a model for churches to implement in welcoming and including individuals and families impacted by mental illness.

Steve and his wife, Denise, live in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. They are taking advantage of their newly found status as empty nesters to enjoy more concerts and theater performances, along with the Cleveland professional sports teams that serve as a continual source of frustration and disappointment for Steve.
