Our Staff

Steve Boyd

Senior Pastor

Steve recently celebrated his 22th anniversary as Senior Pastor of Simpsonville Baptist Church. He and his wife Geri have two daughters, Ashley and Hannah, who attended Campbellsville College, and if pressed, really consider their dog Molly to be a third daughter much of the time. He likes to golf whenever he gets a chance and he would say that he is learning to love to read about theology and the church and all things God-oriented.

Angie Sanford

Church Secretary

There's not much around SBC that Angie hasn't done in her time here, and she's good at all of it! Whether it's working as the secretary for the church where she does it all or teaching preschool children's church and a 5th grade Sunday School class, she holds nothing back for the glory of God. Angie and her husband Tony live on a farm in Shelbyville where she takes care of horses and dogs and several other animals. Her oldest son Adam is in the military and stationed overseas with his wife and daughter and her youngest son Alex is a student at U of L.
