Steve was born in Henderson, NC and raised near Richmond, VA (Midlothian). After graduating with a business degree from Elon College he married Virginia in 1985. They have four children and nine grandchildren, with number ten on the way in February. Steve earned his Master of Divinity with Church Music degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. After uniting with SABC as a layman in 1988 and then as a seminary student (1991-1993), the Roberson’s moved to Durham, NC to serve in their first full time position at Gorman Baptist Church. In 1997, God called them back to SABC where Steve currently serves as Associate Pastor, overseeing worship and administration.
At the age of eleven, I had been in church most of my life and knew enough to understand that I did not live a life that honored the Lord. Selfishness, pride and a love for “things” all seemed to keep me at arm’s length from being who God wanted me to be. After hearing the gospel message that Jesus lived a perfect life, suffered a horrible death on a cross(for all of us) and rose from the dead, I sensed God drawing me to Himself and I surrendered my life to Jesus, declaring Him Savior and Lord of my life.
Each day is a gift from the Lord and I try, by the power of His Spirit living in me, to bring honor and glory to Him in everything I do. If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, maybe today is the day of salvation for you!
