Description of Work & Ministry
Alyssa and Steadman have been serving in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia with Global Outreach International for 10 years.
Alyssa serves as a teacher and administrator at Bingham Academy, a school serving missionaries and expatriates from 40 nations.
Steadman is a business-as-mission leader working with Lead Beyond, a nonprofit empowering leaders to thrive through change, conflict, and crisis.
- The growing city of Addis Ababa needs more than 25 new church plants each year simply to keep up with the rapid urbanization of the capital. In partnership with CHBC and City-to-City Churches, we are asking the Lord to help us start a new church plant in the Fall of 2023. Pray for a growing core team, outreach to young believers and unbelievers, and for the financial means to launch and sustain this international covenant fellowship.
- After more than 25 years of teaching and administration, Alyssa will transition from education to coaching and development. Please pray for God to use her coaching gifts and grow her relational reach as she transitions into this next chapter of missions here in Ethiopia.
- Their youngest son, Ethan, graduates from high school this June. They are asking God to open the right door for university and to provide for him financially and relationally. Alyssa and Steadman will be grandparents as of May – pray for Abby’s pregnancy and delivery.
- Ask for God’s healing for Steadman’s back. He has a herniated disc and needs strength and joy despite the circumstances.
