I am a Christian seeking to follow God’s will. That being said, I center all of my life around how it affects my walk with Jesus. In the past few years, I have developed skills in teaching and preaching. My goal in life is to bring people closer to Jesus Christ. It is not that I am fanatical, but that I have brought my life in line with the work of Christ in my life. In short, I am a person who wants my life to count for Christ in every aspect.
We minister to Native families on the American Indian Field, discipling youth and adults across the Southwestern U.S. We were married in 1998, and although I (Becky) had always had a heart for missions, Doug had no desire to even go on a missions trip. In a morning church service in 2004, God used a work team’s presentation to speak to Doug. Immediately following the service, Doug signed us both up for an 18-day missions trip to Kenya. I was working in the nursery that morning and was unaware of God’s movement on Doug’s heart until he shared with me, “We’re going to Africa!”
The trip to Kenya in 2005 was life-changing, and it was there that God placed the responsibility on my heart to make sure our children experienced a mission field. I and our oldest son, Noah, went on work teams to Kenya in 2013 and Honduras in 2014. Doug wasn’t led to go on another work team until 2015, when he saw a request in the church bulletin for men to volunteer as dorm leaders at Southwest Indian Ministries Center’s summer camp for Native American children. Upon his return from that trip, God worked again on Doug’s heart to take the entire family - our sons Noah, Elijah, and Josiah - back to SIMC for a month. Through that experience, we both knew we were being called to missions.
Native children come from all over Arizona to attend one of Southwest Indian Ministries Center’s camps. While at the camps, they receive all the love and support that Jesus showed to children. We travel throughout Arizona to visit, encourage, and help disciple as many of the campers and their families as possible, so that when the children return to the next camp, they will have grown in their faith.
Our main ministries focus in the areas of encouragement and training Native Christians.
We pastor the Siloam Church, on the Gila River Indian Reservation south of Phoenix, AZ. There we are also involved in youth and children's ministries as well as adult discipleship. Besides the Victory Guitar Outreach program, which has reached many in our area with the message of Christ as well as guitar learning, we are currently heavily involved with a new ministry called SOAR - Servant Overcomer Addiction Recovery. Steve leads the SOAR meeting every Friday evening, which is reaching people even beyond the Siloam church who deal with issues holding them back from being all God has called them to be.
We also are facility directors at Southwest Indian Ministries Center (our youth camp and retreat facility in Peoria, Arizona) and Debbie serves as the Field Treasurer.
From the beginning of our service to the Lord as missionaries, we discovered it to be full of many opportunities to share God's love! We are so thankful for the privilege of sharing Christ's love in a needy part of our world called Bolivia.
