Steven B Angus was born in Columbia, Tennessee. Tennessee has always been his home. Writing and public speaking have always been among his passions. As a child, and then as a youth when he wasn't throwing a baseball or shooting a basketball, he was often writing a story and from time to time even attempting to write a poem. The only thing that rivals his passion for the written word is the spoken word. Sensing a nudge from God he began preaching at the age of 13. At the invitation of his pastor (who is listed in the dedication of his first book) he preached his first sermon, which happened that year to be April 1! The joke turned out to be played on everyone else as the young chap felt right at home and has never lost his love and respect for "speaking the word of the Lord."
As time passed, the opportunities to speak became more frequent. These preaching engagements lead him to many different communities and churches throughout Middle Tennessee. Prior to beginning his senior year of high school, he was invited to become the regular "preacher" of a new congregation. With excitement and a great deal of trepidation he agreed to do so. This was in 1976 and he has been a pastor ever since.
Steven B Angus (Pastor Steve to most of his parishioners) is a graduate of Spring Hill High School, Spring Hill, Tennessee where he spent many hours in the summer "haling hay", "chopping corn," "topping and hanging tobacco" and fielding and tending to livestock on The University of Tennessee Agricultural Experiment Station. He attended college at Martin Methodist College, Middle Tennessee State University, and seminary at the Vanderbilt Divinity School. He also has doctoral degrees from Bethany Theological Seminary and The School of Theology, University of the South.
His sermons have been published in various formats and he has written for such preaching periodicals as Emphasis. No Greater Inheritance: The Last Will and Testament of Jesus Christ is his first published book.
Steven and his wife Gretchen are the parents of six children, and "Pops" and "Grammy" to nine grandchildren (and possibly still counting--grand-kids that is!)
