Steve & Barb Molsee

Steve and Barb Molsee serve in southeastern Idaho, a rural area teeming with agricultural work, like raising cattle and growing potatoes and grain. There are rugged mountains and pristine fishing streams within a few hours drive of the Molsees’ home in Roberts.
Southeastern Idaho is in the heart of Mormon country, and is heavily influenced by its religion and culture. Many people, especially youth and young adults, are deceived and mislead by the Mormon religion or completely burnt out by the bombardment of it, and want nothing to do with God as a result. There is a screaming need amongst youth for a relationship with Jesus. Partying and being tough are seen as the preferred lifestyle.
After seeing the need in their community, the Molsees began ministering to anyone God put in their path who would listen to the gospel message. “We offer Jesus as the answer, whatever your situation may be,” Steve explains.
Steve is the pastor at Roberts Community Church, a “cowboy church” in Firth, Idaho, and serves as a “circuit preacher” at Arbon Valley Bible Church. He leads worship on a twelve-string guitar at many of the places he preaches. The Molsees are also actively involved in ministry at Old Faithful Christian Ranch, where Steve is chairman of the Board of Directors.
Barb works in the adolescent wing of State Hospital South, an institution for mental patients. The Molsees have also taken in Barb’s 45-year-old brother, who has Downs’ syndrome. He is Steve’s sidekick on many ministry road trips.
The Molsees have served as InFaith field staff since 1996.
Steve describes himself as a country boy in love with Jesus, often found scheming “outside of the box” of traditional Christian ministry. Faith in Christ is the most important characteristic of the Molsees’ lives.
