Personal
Steve and Holly are a blended family with six children and 17 grandchildren, with also two great-grandchildren. Since being in the field they had one of their sons go home to be with the Lord. Over the years of ministry in the U.S., they were able to mentor, disciple many into a deeper relationship with the Lord, one that helps them know their power and authority in Christ Jesus. They ministered along side John and Sonja Decker for eight years in Bend, Oregon having many opportunities to travel and assist in using The Ambassador Series, that the Decker’s authored.

At the beginning of their retirement from their construction company, Steve and Holly experienced the leading of the Lord to pray about taking the Ministry Training Institute to all of Mexico. After some very precise confirmations, they knew they were being lead from retirement to “refirement.”

Deployment to Mexico came on December 5, 2010. They now enjoy many opportunities to utilize their skills to help strengthen the Kingdom of God in Mexico. Skills such as, building, plumbing, planning, electrical, hairstyling, computer skills and many other things the Lord is allowing them to share for the advancement of His work in Mexico.

Ministry
During the past four years, Steve and Holly have trained disciples, pastors and leaders through the Ministry Training Institute they established in Playa del Carmen. They began taking the ministry training throughout Mexico, with intensives to help teach and encourage churches to embrace the curriculum for their region. Then, they began to cast the vision of church planting through these institutes and strengthen the Christian foundation to establish discipleship throughout the country.

Today, they train interns to serve in Mexico, welcome short term mission teams, and provide tangible and spiritual ways for them to touch the communities of this beautiful nation with Christ Jesus.
