ABOUT STEVE CAMP

Steve Camp has one mission – to pursue the path God has laid out for him and bring Him glory in every avenue and opportunity placed in front of him. This mission has given Steve Camp an array of titles; Contemporary Christian Artist, Musicianary, Pastor, Radio Host, Author, Modern-day Paladin, and more. 

Responsible for 15 No. 1 songs and 40+ Top 10s, Steve Camp is a household name, known for his dynamic musical career starting in 1975. His songs blasted airwaves, resonating with hearts worldwide, landing him numerous awards including being one of two recipients of the NARAS President's Merit Award for his exemplary work, "Do Something Now" The Cause; writing the GRAMMY Award-winning song, "Martin", a tribute to the late Martin Luther King, Jr., performed by gospel legend, Shirley Caesar; as well as a GRAMMY Award nomination for "Love's Not A Feeling".  

Other accomplishments include having championed causes for Compassion International and Food For The Hungry; spear-heading an unparalleled biblical outreach to people with AIDS - AIDS Crisis and Christians Today (A.C.C.T.); demonstrating his pro-life beliefs by performing numerous benefit concerts for crisis pregnancy centers and performing a benefit concert at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall for the Royal Family benefiting Princess Anne's "Save the Children". 

 

In 1997, Camp released his unprecedented document entitled The 107 THESES: A Call to Reformation for the Contemporary Christian Music Industry, the clarion call for all in the Contemporary Christian Music Industry to reformation in returning to the authority of Scripture, the accountability of the local church, the ascendancy of the glory of God, and not being unequally yoked with an unbelieving world.

After 32 years in Contemporary Christian Music, Camp was called to full-time pastoral ministry, and is now the Senior Pastor of The Cross Church in Palm City, FL, ordained in 2009. 

Throughout his career, Steve Camp has been consistently willing, able, and unafraid to confront hard issues, gaining the reputation that "If Steve doesn't say it, it doesn't get said". This rings true in his upcoming, mainstream album, C A M P – his first in 22 years – releasing in 2024. Taking a step back from the CCM genre that launched him, mainstream will allow Camp to speak these truths into song, with 26 "no holds barred" tracks addressing current world issues with courage, style and grace, as only Steve Camp can.
