Steve is the pastor of the Protestant Evangelical Church of Woluwe.
The church was planted in the early 1980s and has seen significant growth amongst families in recent years. It is situated near the university and is a short metro journey from the large EU community and business district. The church enjoys a close relationship with the Brussels Bible Institute, who send several students to work with them. In 2016 the church launched a small church plant in the neighbouring district of Etterbeek, under the leadership of Johnny Pilgrem.
Steve and Dawn have four children: Jemima, Max, Zebedee and Nelly.

If the Oranges are writing again so shortly after their previous communication, it is no doubt for a specific reason – and so we’ll keep this short and to the point.
Thanks so much to many of you who had expressed a desire to support the building project mentioned in our last letter – both praying that we might raise the funds and in contributing to the fundraising effort. We were encouraged by many positive signs, including a terrific response from within the congregation at Woluwe (more than €120,000 were pledged internally). But as we moved with the seller to sign a purchase agreement (with a couple of suspension clauses depending on securing the necessary loan from the bank) we heard at the end of last week that they no longer wished to sell the commercial space to us as we are a church. This came with no prior discussion and despite the fact that of course this had been raised at the outset. There is also no express clause in their ‘acte de base’ that excludes the space being sold to a church.
