Steve has been on Young Life staff for over 20 years serving in various roles. He served as regional director of Indiana/Kentucky and as senior vice president for Young Life Africa/Middle East before taking the role of group senior vice president of International East: Africa/Middle East, India, Asia and Australia.
The Larmeys have served the mission of Young Life in Africa since 2002 when Young Life was operating in a couple of high schools in only one city in Ethiopia. In 2019, 17 years later, God has grown the ministry to 26 countries, almost 8,000 volunteer leaders and almost 225 national staff. Young Life Africa/Middle East is the fastest growing frontier of Young Life ministry. Over 1,100,000 kids have been reached for Christ and 94,000 kids and leaders attended a Young Life camp in Africa/Middle East in 2019. Steve began overseeing India, Asia and Australia to the geography he oversees and he looks forward to seeing all God does.
Beyond recruiting and coaching the team of staff and leaders who oversee this work, Steve and Dyan are active in their local church, volunteer with WyldLife and sit on the Board of Trustees for Haven of Peace Academy. They have four children who all attend college in the United States.
