Joshua and Kelsie are missionaries enjoying life as best friends, serving their Savior, and raising up their children to honor Him.
Joshua has been ministering the Gospel in Ukraine since 2001, and has also served in Mexico, Hong Kong, Thailand and the United States. Prior to her calling as a wife and mother, Kelsie took part in mission trips to Taiwan, Mexico, and Romania. She and Joshua were married on September 18, 2004, after which they returned to Ukraine as a couple.
As missionaries, Joshua and Kelsie are sent out of Fairpark Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas. They are both founding members of Euro Team Outreach (ETO), a ministry dedicated to advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Eastern Europe. One of ETO’s core outreaches is Bible First!, a correspondence course which introduces its readers to Christ through a chronological study of the book of Genesis. Bible First! currently reaches over 500 students in various parts of Ukraine.
During the summer months, ETO hosts Carpathian Mountain Outreach, an annual short-term project aimed at evangelizing remote mountain villages, expanding the impact of Bible First! in Ukraine, and providing hands-on missions training for young men.
The Steeles currently reside in L’viv, Ukraine. They have three children: Abigail Hope (9/25/2005), Rebekah Praise (1/17/2008), and Hosanna Joy (11/15/2010). Both Joshua and Kelsie speak the Ukrainian language fluently and are actively involved in the lives of the Ukrainian people.
