Steve Fairchild serves as the third pastor in the history of Low Country Community Church (LC3). Steve actively engages with organizations such as Coastal School Ministries, Fields of Faith, and WinShape Camps in Murrells Inlet. He also serves as the baseball chaplain for St. James High School. Beyond his pastoral role, Steve's unique journey includes a musical background as a drummer and vocalist in his family's musical endeavors. Notably, his resemblance to Garth Brooks led him to a parallel career as a Garth Brooks tribute artist, allowing him to share the gospel through his performances. Family remains central to Steve's life; he's been married to his wife, Ann, for over 25 years and is a proud father of three daughters and a grandfather to three grandchildren. His story embodies faith, adaptability, and a commitment to spreading the message of Jesus Christ both within and beyond the church.

Who are the MAC?

The Mainland Advisory Council (MAC) is a group of more than 300 friends who have supported HBA since 1977 through prayer, financial giving, and recruiting of new donors. The impact that the MAC and its friends have had on HBA through the years reaches far beyond Hawaii's shores and spans generations. They come from 25 states and generally consider the annual meeting in Honolulu a combination revival and reunion.

The annual MAC meeting is one of the highlights of the year for the entire HBA family. During the week, our mainland friends meet our students, faculty and staff, alumni, parents and grandparents during campus visits. They also are updated on the latest plans for the school and its future.

"I first became interested in Hawaii Baptist Academy while working on the missions committee at my church. Bob Spotswood, who is a MAC member, gave me information about HBA. I was amazed by the story of how HBA acquired its elementary campus. God’s provision and favor were clearly evident. I then came to visit the school, and was overwhelmed by the joy I experienced from the children."

Clara Inglish, Dallas, Texas.
MAC Member since 2012.
