Steven Sanderson has been serving as our youth pastor and associate pastor since 2016. In January of 2020, he also began serving as our Music Minister following the retirement of our long time music minister, Steve McAnally. 

A long time ago in a town that is not that far away (actually this town) he graduated from Belmont High School. In another town, not that far way, his wife Lisa graduated from Red Bay High School. Steven and Lisa are both educators for the Tishomingo County School District. He works at Iuka Middle School as a Special Education Teacher, and Lisa works at Belmont Elementary School as Library Assistant.

Steven and Lisa have been married for 15 years and live in Belmont. Their spectacular daughter Lily is in the seventh grade at Belmont Middle School and by night is known as Casey the Cardinal. Their pro-athlete son Max is in the third grade at Belmont Elementary and loves to play basketball and tennis.

At the age of ten, Steven placed his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and was saved by His grace at a VBS in Tishomingo, MS. Several years later, he felt God call him to preach and began ministering to the youth at Shiloh Baptist Church in Hamilton, AL. After serving there, he pastored churches in Alabama and West Virginia.

Steven has Masters in Pastoral Counseling from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and a Bachelors in Religion from Liberty University. He also has an Associates from Northeast Mississippi Community College. He obtained his teaching license through Teach Mississippi Institute in the University of Mississippi.

Steven loves working with students and serving in any capacity where he can help edify and encourage the church. His passion is evangelism and discipling the youth. He also loves teaching and preaching the Word of God.

His favorite verse from the Bible is Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
