THE CONTEXT

As Director of In Touch Mission International, Steve's leadership enables believers all over the world to partner with each other for the benefit of God's kingdom.

Steve spends his time serving and empowering ITMI partners. Steve travels to visit, encourage and support ITMI nationals annually, then returns to the US to advocate for their ministries and tell their stories. These first-hand visits are an integral part of ITMI's commitment to integrity and accountability.

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.

Steve's passion for God and love for people is evident wherever He goes. He not only works to enable ITMI's partners to do the work they were called to do, but to give more and more people the blessing of being involved with what God is doing through prayer and financial support.

“Last month we lost one of these precious servants…”

Johann excelled in music from a very young age, and from there, only ascended with his music. Johann loved the scriptures also. His passion was to give his community “well-regulated church music to the glory of God,” and he would often scribble “J.J” on his blank future sheets of music: Jesu Juva (“Help me, Jesus”). Johann Sebastian Bach once responded to a compliment on his musical skills with the comment, “There is nothing very wonderful about it, you have only to hit the right notes at the right moment and the instrument does the rest.”
