Welcome! My name is Steve Johnson and in addition to my preaching and teaching, I write.
"WHAT ARE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS AS A WRITER?"
I've written dozens of articles, columns, stories, and press releases. Among the publications and organizations I've written for are: Focus on the Family's Thriving Family; Devotions; The Secret Place; Good News; Pathway; Advanced Christian Writer; Christian Communicator; LIVING; River Region's Journey; The Lexington Dispatch-News; the Tri-Town Transcript; The State newspaper; The Gamecock; and the Capital City Bombers (then the Class "A" affiliate of the New York Mets).
I gained much of my experience working in the following roles: as Section Managing Editor of The Gaston-Swansea Extra; Media Relations Director for the Capital City Bombers; News Editor for The Chieftain Chronicle; Special Correspondent for The State; and Sports Editor for The Gamecock.
"WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND?"
I have a B.A. in Political Science from the University of South Carolina and a M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I'm currently enrolled with the American Writers & Artists Inc. (AWAI) in their Secrets of Writing for the Christian Market program.
I was one of 33 participants invited by Dr. Mark Dever (Senior Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church) to a Seminar/Discussion (on March 30, 1999 at CHBC) designed to expand Nine Marks of a Healthy Church from booklet to book form prior to publication by Crossway Books. (Other participants included: Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals president Ligon Duncan; Wheaton College president Phil Ryken; Beeson Divinity School president Timothy George; First Baptist Church of Durham pastor Andrew Davis; and Third Avenue Baptist Church pastor Greg Gilbert.)
I am presently a member of: American Writers & Artists, The Christian Writers View, and Shenandoah Christian Writers.
