Steve directed the work in the Philippines 1997-2001, coordinated academic services for Asia 2004-2008, and at the global level 2009-2013.

Steve, Janice and Daniel returned to the Philippines 2013-2017, as Steve began a new role as Global Scripture Access Services Director.

Daniel attended and graduated from Faith Academy High School.

The Quakenbushes returned to Grand Rapids, MI in 2017, where Steve continues in his global role--helping make Scripture accessible to language communities worldwide in languages and forms that speak to their hearts.

Wycliffe Ministry Budget

Wycliffe establishes a Ministry Budget for its missionaries to reflect recurring expenses related to family factors and their geographic location of service. Giving to this account directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.

This budget covers ministry-related expenses, insurance and retirement, social security and taxes, and Wycliffe administrative costs. The remainder is what the missionaries receive as “take-home pay” for their daily living expenses.
