His first-hand knowledge of ITMI partners and their needs allows people to make meaningful connections that allow for greater impact. His advocacy of ITMI partners has resulted in the blessing of many supporters and partners.
His love for God and love for people surrounds them wherever He goes. He not only works to enable ITMI's partners to do their work, but to give more and more people the blessing of being involved with their God's work in their ministries.
As ITMI's Director, Steve directs the organization that for some, is their lifeline. He spends his time serving and empowering ITMI partners, using his experience in business, sales and photography. Steve travels to visit, encourage and support ITMI nationals annually, then returns to the US to tell their stories.
ITMI partners deeply appreciate Steve's dedication and hard work on their behalf.

“Something funny happened as we waited for our departure plane in Phoenix,” Steve says. It was 10pm on a Tuesday night. We were waiting to board our plane in the crowded waiting area. Other than the normal amount of TSA security-induced tension in the room, it was a fairly subdued crowd.
It was a text you wouldn’t want to receive. The photos that came with it provided visual confirmation of the news.
It was a short video, and was a tad grainy, but it showed clearly what challenges the people of rural India, and as a matter of fact, the rest of the world live under.The video was sent to me by our partner Paul in India. If we could show you the video it would show…
January was an exciting month at Word of Life Church in Juba, South Sudan!
“Now, where would you send your splendid choir? To a big concert hall maybe? Or a palace, perhaps? God sent his to a little hillside, outside a little town, in the middle of the night.” The words of the Christmas story as written by Sally Lloyd-Jones in The Jesus Storybook Bible grabbed most of my attention.

On Piotr Zaremba’s recent trip to visit the Polish residents of Chicago and New York City, he noticed something interesting. More than once, he heard people muse out loud, “…it really says that…that’s what that meant?” Many more flashed facial expressions that seemed to be communicating a similar sentiment.
On my last two trips to South Sudan, Uganda, Zambia and South Africa, and in my discussions with our Indian partners, I was told numerous times that…
Nursa stood, facing the congregation of her fellow believers who had gathered for an evening service in Juba, South Sudan. “God is Good,” she reminded them, and she illuminated how He’d been good to her personally. Nursa, a widow, attended the SALT Financial training ITMI’s Steve Evers and Kent Reisenauer gave earlier this year…
