Steve Jacks has served as Senior Pastor of Higher Ground Church since it’s founding in 1997. “Pastor Steve,” as he is affectionately known, deeply loves the Bible because he knows it has the power to transform lives and to guide anyone through any situation they may face. He has a God-given ability to communicate the message of the gospel with great clarity through straightforward Biblical preaching. He shares the Word with great sincerity and candid application as he encourages his listeners to deepen their walk with Christ.
Pastor Steve attended North Greenville University and Furman University. He has held senior pastoral positions in both North and South Carolina.
Though he has led ministry efforts around the world, he would quickly tell you that his most important ministry is his family. He has been married to Cathy, his childhood sweetheart, for over 43 years. They have one daughter and three grandchildren.
