Welcome! My name is Steve Johnson. God has called, gifted, and confirmed that I am to be a pastor, preaching the good news of His Word every week and helping to care for a congregation.
I am serving as Pastor of Oak Chapel Baptist Church in Orange, Virginia, leading them through the Transition Process developed by LifeWay as I seek a long-term position as a pastor. Previously I served as the Pastor of Mars Hill Baptist Church in Baltimore for over 12 years.
I desire to serve in full-time pastoral ministry in a suburban or urban context where there are more lost people per square inch who need to hear the good news of Jesus.
My fellow members have affirmed my giftedness and calling, and are praying for me. Upon request, I am happy to provide you with references from fellow pastors who've known me at various points throughout my years as a follower of the Lord Jesus. I am also happy to provide references from church members who've been most helped by my preaching, teaching, and discipleship.
You can learn more about my pastoral ministry background by clicking on the "Preaching" tab above.
Once you've spent some time there, feel free to fill out the contact form on the "Contact Steve" page or contact me by email or phone.
