Pastor Stephen (Steve) Sanders, called to preach at Westland Heights Baptist Church in August 2013, was born in Dallas, Texas.  He was raised in nearby Arlington where he attended Sam Houston High School.  It was there, in 1970, that he met his future bride Susie Anthony.  They married in 1975, and raised three daughters, all of whom are now married.  Pastor Steve and Susie have been blessed with five grandchildren.  

He accepted Christ as Lord and Savior in October 1978 at Hillcrest Park Baptist Church.  After High School he attended Antioch West University where he earned his B.S. in Business and his M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Steve has been in the ministry for about 21 years serving briefly in East Texas, but primarily served in Hawaii.  They first went to Hawaii as Mission Service Corps Volunteers for the Southern Baptist Convention.  After seminary they returned to Hawaii to pastor the Waipio Community Baptist Church for fifteen years.  Steve currently works as the Church Relations Director for Cargill Associates, Inc., a capital fundraising firm.

His desire is to preach God’s word in an uncompromising way, and shepherd God’s people.  His strength is his ability to accept folks where they are and seek to bring them to a deeper knowledge of God.
