Preaching the Gospel, Training Leaders and Supporting the Church in Papua New Guinea

Steve and Brooke Highlander have been preaching the gospel and meeting practical needs in Papau New Guinea (PNG) since 2014. Their ministry has included working with survivors of gender-based violence, young men from the settlements and villages and children in crisis, as well as outreach ministry to churches, villages and settlements. They returned to PNG in May 2017 as official missionaries with Foursquare Missions International (FMI) and the National Foursquare Church in Papua New Guinea. They have been tasked with helping the national office handle administrative duties and communications, teaching in several Bible Colleges, leadership development and teaching in pastors conferences and leadership seminars. They will also be managing a Foursquare Missions Press printing operation. They will continue to minister in local churches, seminars and revival meetings in the villages and settlements in Port Moresby and around PNG. According to the Highlanders, "We are extremely excited about this new opportunity to expand our ministry in PNG. Our work with Foursquare brings us more fully in line with the vision we have and we are grateful for the opportunities to support the existing ministry and raise up a new generation of spiritual leaders in this country."

Papua New Guinea is the poster child for diversity, with over 1000 distinct tribes and 830 languages.

The Highlanders are dedicated Christians with years of diverse ministry experience behind them.

From pastoral and worship ministry to prison ministry and work with at-risk youth, Steve and Brooke have been serving the Lord for nealy 35 years. Their experience includes mission work in Africa, Australia, The Philippines, Malaysia, Mexico. Most recently they have been serving in Papua New Guinea preaching the gospel and meeting human needs.
