Dr. Steve Jussely Senior Pastor

Steve Jussely was born in Decatur, GA, but is a naturalized citizen of Mississippi. The son of a preacher-man, he moved to Hattiesburg in ’58 and graduated from Hattiesburg High School in 1970, THE University of Southern Mississippi in 1974 (BS), Reformed Theological Seminary (Jackson, MS) in 1982 (MDiv), and received a D. Min. degree from RTS in 1997.

Having been born into a pastor’s home, it seems like he’s been in the ministry from his first moment of self-awareness. He has served as Director of Youth Ministries and Associate Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Hattiesburg (’80-85), Senior Pastor of Rainbow Presbyterian Church in Gadsden, AL (’85-’89), Senior Pastor of Alta Woods Presbyterian Church in Jackson (’89-’97), and Senior Pastor of Lakeland Presbyterian Church in Flowood (’97-Present).

Steve is greatly blessed with a wife of 30 years, Carol Smith Jussely, resides in Brandon, and the Lord God has graciously given Steve and Carol three children: Aaron, Ellen, and Mary Claire. He also has three dogs — a mixed blessing, at best. Before pursuing his calling to the ministry of the Gospel and his passion for preaching and teaching the Word, he was a former teacher, coach, and radio announcer. Steve loves to read, loves all kinds of good music, and loves to play his Taylor guitars.
