Steve Anderson, along with his wife, Martha, came on board with BWM in 1997 as furlough replacement missionaries. They replace BWM missionaries who come back to the States for furlough by keeping their work growing in their absence. In 2002 Steve was appointed as the field administrator for Africa. As the Lord enables, they are presently serving in both of these capacities. The Andersons spent three terms in West Africa prior to serving with Baptist World Mission. That experience has given them a real love for the continent of Africa and its peoples, as well as a burden for its great spiritual needs. Steve is currently field administrator for Africa, U.K. and Ireland, Middle East, and furlough replacement missionaries.
In Mr. Anderson’s words: “It is a thrill to visit the missionaries on the fields, to see them serving in their respective ministries, to be an encouragement to them and to the national believers, and to provide a liaison with their supporters. I also tremendously enjoy representing the Mission in local churches and on college campuses.”
