Welcome to Steve and Paulette’s Place!

When it comes to various church experiences, Steve and Paulette Kozar have done it all: youth group leaders, worship band, prophetic prayer team, and more. After seeing a parade of young people abandon their faith upon entering adulthood, including their own children, they began asking tough questions. Steve, a world-renown photorealist painter, used his obsession for detail to research the Church and its many false teachers to eventually become an avid blogger, researcher, and YouTuber, and Paulette has joined him on their popular new YouTube program: “Hit the Bar.” In this folksy, yet informative program for AGTV, they combine their own life story with an exploration of theology, history, apologetics, and a love for the Word of God.
