Steve and Julie were married in 1994 and have been blessed with three children; Matthew (1996), Charis (1998), and Caleb (2002). Steve was called into full-time ministry while on a mission trip in Gallup, NM in 2006. Following God's clear call, Steve served as pastor in Golden Valley, AZ from 2009 to 2016. During that time, Julie was integral in developing the children's ministry and beginning the LIFT ministry. Matthew, Charis, and Caleb participated and served in the children's, youth, music, and LIFT ministries.
Relying on a few key Scriptures (John 15:5, Philippians 4:13, and 1 Corinthians 11:1), Steve's philosophy of ministry is simple, "Lead from the outflow of what God is doing in your life."
Steve and Julie began serving at West Point Baptist Church October 2nd, 2016.

JJ grew up in Crane Hill in Cullman County. He graduated from West Point High School in 1992 and also attended Wallace State Community College. He now works as a rural carrier for the USPS.
JJ felt the call to serve the Lord through music at a very early age. He began playing piano and singing as a small child in various churches where his father served as pastor. He became a member of West Point Baptist Church in 2005, first serving as keyboard player for the praise band, and currently serves as Associate Music Minister.
JJ believes that even though music is only one form of worship, it can set the tone for the entire worship service, and can be a very encouraging and uplifting way to worship the Lord in everyday life.
"I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will praise my God to my last breath." - Psalm 104:33
