Steve Elliott's Bio:
As co-founder and President of, Steve Elliott understands the influence that one person with one idea can have on the world. Elliott, a nationally recognized communications specialist, developed Grassfire in the fall of 2000 while searching for a way to use the Internet to expand the impact of conservative citizens.

Today, Grassfire is one of America's largest online grassroots citizen action networks. Elliott and his associates have utilized the tools of the Internet to expand the organization and rally a dynamic network of more than two million participants across the country in support of traditional values. Approximately, 10,000 new team members join each week.

Through Grassfire, Elliott has seen his influence expand from one voice to that of hundreds of thousands of citizens who take action of issues impacting their lives. Elliott brands this phenomenon "the Grassfire Effect" and describes it as the fundamental principle of individual and organizational growth. In his book, The Grassfire Effect, Elliott elaborates upon this theme and tells of his own experiences in launching Grassfire. He hopes to show how tiny sparks of ideas can ignite world-changing grassfires.

Steve earned a M.A. in Public Policy from Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia in 1994. Today, Steve is a frequent guest on talk radio shows across the country. He resides with his wife, Stacy, and their five children in Chesapeake, Virginia. For more information, visit
