Steve Westergren

Acting Executive Director

MA. Interpersonal Communications
BA. Psychology

Southeast Asia seems more like home to Steve than does his passport country, the United States.  The son of C&MA missionaries, Steve grew up in Cambodia and Hong Kong. After college, Steve spent a year in refugee ministries in the Philippines, and began sensing then that God was speaking to him about the important work of people-care. He pursued a graduate degree in interpersonal communications at Wheaton Graduate School, and then spent the next several years in pastoral ministry in the US.

Steve and his wife Mary have been involved in a variety of traditional mission activities with the C&MA since 1986, first in Thailand, and then in Cambodia (1990 – 2011).  One of Steve’s ministry highlights was starting a Christian Publishing House in Cambodia. Fount of Wisdom Publishing House recently celebrated their 10th anniversary, and is now fully under Cambodian leadership. Beyond producing books, Steve took particular delight in the discipleship and people-care involved in developing a cohesive staff.

In this new chapter of ministry, Steve finds it a joy to use his administrative and leadership gifts at The Well. Member care and mental health ministries for international workers are some of Steve’s passions! Steve and Mary have raised their four children (ages 17-25) overseas, and know the unique blend of blessing and challenge that brings to a family.
