Steve and Julie Kramer and their two kids, Kees (“case”) and Sela (“sayla”) have been missionaries to the Netherlands for over 10 years. They have been primarily involved in church planting and university ministries and have worked with several different church plants, the most recent being Damascus Road International Church in Maastricht, Netherlands (www.damascusroadic.com). They also pioneered DR:UM (Damascus Road University Ministry) which met each week in a bar in the middle of Maastricht and gave hundreds of European students exposure to the good news of Jesus.
The Kramers have a passion to see a new generation of university students raised up to have an impact on this world. They have seen the need around the world and are now working to raise up new laborers in the harvest- missionaries, church planters, pastors and those who work in the marketplace.
In 2014, God led the Kramers back to the place where Steve earned his Bachelor of Arts in Electronic Media, the University of Oregon. In the early-to-mid nineties, Steve was a young broadcasting student and remembers what it is like to be on campus in Eugene. While many will say, the university campus is a “mission field”, the Kramers believe the university campus has the God-given potential to be a “missionary-sending field”. They are believing God to help them reach students for Jesus that will in turn will impact this world.
The Kramers are now serving as the directors of Chi Alpha* Christian Fellowship at the University of Oregon.
*Chi Alpha is the university ministry of the Assemblies of God. There is a Chi Alpha ministry on over 300 college and university campuses in the United States with affiliates around the world.
