Don’t miss your opportunity to enjoy one of gospel music’s most honored vocalists, Steve Green.
DiscipleGuide’s Senior Adult Conference will feature Grammy nominated Dove award recipient, Steve Green. Known best for his song, “People Need the Lord,” Green has enjoyed a long ministry in gospel music.
After a two-year stint with the group Truth, (1976–78 Green and his wife Marijean moved to Alexandria, Indiana to sing backup for the Bill Gaither Trio, and eventually became a founding member of the Gaither Vocal Band. In 1983, Steve signed a solo contract with Sparrow Records, and his self-titled debut album appeared in 1984. In the same year, he established Steve Green Ministries.
His 1985 release of He Holds the Keys earned Green the Dove Award for Male Vocalist of the Year in the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) category. The following year, 1986, saw the release of two recordings, For God And God Alone and a worship/hymns album entitled A Mighty Fortress. In early 1988, he released an album dedicated to his parents called Find Us Faithful. As the 1980s came to an end, many of Green’s songs became recognized standards including “People Need the Lord” and “Broken and Spilled Out”.
Green was involved with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association from the mid-1980s onward.
Green recorded The Mission in 1989 and continued his success with We Believe in 1991. Green returned to traditional roots by releasing an album of hymns in 1992. In 1994, Green released his “Where Mercy Begins” album. 1998 saw the release of The Faithful and 2000 saw the release of a devotional song album entitled Morning Light. Two years later Green released Woven in Time and again found himself receiving a career boost.
In 2005 Green released a new album, Somewhere Between and in 2007 Green released his last non-compilation album under the Sparrow label, Always: Songs of Worship. In 2010, Green released Love Will Find a Way, his first release through Steve Green Ministries. This album featured David Phelps on the track “God is Love.”
In 2012, Green released two albums, Rest in the Wonder and Christmas. Green stated “Rest in the Wonder is a declaration of absolute trust in God, fiercely holding to what we know for certain and reverently worshiping the One whose ways are higher than our ways and whose thoughts are higher than our thoughts.”
2014 saw the release of two more albums from Green: Hide the Word: Bible Songs for Kids and Hymns.
He is married to Marijean Green, whose own vocal qualities complemented her husband’s on the song “Household of Faith” on the For God And God Alone album and subsequent appearances. The song has become a staple among Christian wedding duets. They have two children, Summer (born 1981) and Josiah (born 1985).
The annual Senior Adult Conference will take place November 13-15 at the Hilton Convention Center Hotel in Branson, Missouri. In addition to Green, the conference will also feature pastor Don Chandler, worship leaders David Attebery and Neil Dumas, the Central Baptist College Singers, and Sight & Sound’s Miracle of Christmas Show.
