Devoted to the Word

Steve Johnson didn't enter the ministry until he was 30 years old. Encouraged by his mother to be a preacher after nearly dying from scarlet fever as a child, he nonetheless initially pursued an MBA and a career as a CPA before surrendering to the call at 'Exciting' Eastwood Baptist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1973. Rather than following a typical seminary pathway he was mentored by senior pastors and embarked on an intensive personal study of the Bible, a discipline he maintained his whole life and which resulted in his over 15,000 sermon notes. In December 2012 he retired as senior pastor of Beacon Hill Baptist Church (formerly Baptist Chapel) in Owasso, Oklahoma, where he had served for 22 years.
