Steve and Lois Dresselhaus

Steve and Lois' story & ministry

Steve and Lois Dresselhaus are both TEAM MKs, Steve from Venezuela, and Lois. Japan.  They have been long term missionaries with TEAM, Steve since 1983, and Lois since 1985.  Steve served first in Baja California Sur Mexico and then after he and Lois were married, they served in Venezuela for four years.  In 1992 Steve and Lois transferred to Baja, Mexico where Steve served as the ministry area leader.  They also worked on a team with other church planting missionaries.  For 7 years, Steve served as TEAM’s senior director for the Americas.  In 2015, they returned to Mexico where they work at starting neighborhood “walk to” churches.  They also started an NGO called Reconciliamar which uses “adventures at sea to transform lives.”   They take local people to sea for kayaking or SCUBA diving and use those many hours at sea with their friends to make disciples for Jesus. The ocean-based adventures are also useful times in which to discuss what it means to care for God´s creation.   Reconciliamar is resulting in the gathering of a new church called Psalm 1.

Steve and Lois were involved in the earliest steps of TEAM’s creation care ministries.
