Revd Steve resigned from his full time career in 2001 and moved across the world to attend Rhema – Singapore with Detty Laidlow, his first wife, who sadly died in 2016. After completing the first year of ministry training in Singapore, they relocated to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to complete the rest of their training at Rhema – USA.

During this time, they pioneered Living Faith International Church, Word of Faith Bible Training Centres and the humanitarian projects were developed under Seeds of Faith Humanitarian. Steve also helped pioneer and instructed at Rhema – Indonesia in Jakarta for 4 years.

Steve and Ann have both travelled extensively around the world, teaching and preaching and involved in humanitarian projects. They are known and recognised for church planting and pioneering Bible Schools and are well sought after as conference speakers.
