Williams, Steve & Rita

Serving in New Zealand , Pacific Islands | Acct # 95650



Steve and Rita Williams previously served as MTW missionaries in Germany and Austria where they established the retreat/counseling ministry of Barnabas Zentrum. During that time, Steve also served as the MTW European area care coordinator. In 2006 the Williams redeployed to New Zealand to serve with the Grace Presbyterian Church of New Zealand. In recent years Steve has especially been active in national church planting and in overseas missions. Rita also serves on the national Women in the Church committee. All these various ministries operate under the MTW/GPCNZ partnership project called the New Zealand Grace Care Community.


Steve is the MTW team leader for New Zealand/Pacific Islands. The Williams are particularly involved in an initiative called the Island-to-Island Partnership in an interdenominational effort to bring gospel revitalization to Oceania. The Pacific Islands have often been referred to as the “forgotten mission field” because although originally evangelized in the 1800s, comparably little has been done since these early years to further solidify the Christian faith. Thankfully, God has opened a window of opportunity to revisit this vast area of the globe to assist churches in providing for a more grounded and vibrant Christian witness.
