Steve and Jan have a long history of serving in Mexico with various visiting teams starting in 1976. Later, as youth pastors, they brought their own youth teams to Mexico and in 1996, transitioned to working directly with Mexican Medical in the communities in southern Baja.
In 2002, Steve accepted the position of president of Mexican Medical, and now oversees the day-to-day operations of the organization. His responsibilities include pastoring the 30 field missionaries, non-profit financial accountability, and furthering the vision of Mexican Medical to bring healing and hope to the people of Mexico.
Steve and Jan have recently expanded this vision to include assisting at the Gabriel House, a home for severely disabled children, partnering with a local Bible school, and enhancing community health education.
God has shown them that demonstrating compassion through medical service opens the door to share the gospel and softens hearts to receive it.
