Steven & Karla Stoffelsen are the founders of House of Refuge Street Ministries in Chiquimulilla, Guatemala. Steven gave up his life in Canada to respond to the call of God in 2002. Now he and his wife live in Guatemala full time. They also preach the Gospel throughout Guatemala, El Salvador, Canada and the USA.
Steven & Karla are voluntary co-pastors at a local church in Chiquimulilla where we train our staff and volunteers with programs, such as, discipleship, seminars and prevention programs.
Our vision is to impact society’s most rejected men and women, introducing them to the unconditional love of Jesus. With eyes of faith, we see them saved, transformed, trained and bringing into the Kingdom others around them who are still lost and rejected. We see them fully released into all the world in their apostolic, prophetic, teaching, pastoral and evangelism anointings and giftings.
“Loving the Unloved, Reaching the Unreached!”
Our mission is to deliver hope, restoration and opportunities for transformation to those without hope who have lost their families and loved ones due to drug and alcohol addiction. By providing life skills and training in trades, we will prepare men and women to value their roles in society, contribute in a productive manner and, with God’s help, see their families reunited and whole.
