Houseparents - Steve & Lynn DeBoef

Steve & Lynn DeBoef

We currently serve as the houseparents at the Family LIFE Center of West Michigan. We have five children, three of whom (Brett, Cody and Lydia) still reside with us. We've been married for 28 years and we cherish every minute of our time together as a couple both in the midst of the busyness of ministry and by ourselves when we have the opportunity for respite.

We enjoy ministry work and making new relationships and the 3 ½ years we have spent being houseparents at the FLC have provided ample opportunity for that. Our goal for each resident is that they see Jesus as the only way for salvation and help them walk that path of discovery as God leads them. The residents see first hand our lives lived out in love for our Lord and we point them to Jesus with every opportunity we can. 

Our family worships at Cedar OPC in Jenison where we are faithfully fed each week.  Bible Study Fellowship in Allendale is one of my weekly highlights as a house mother and Steve works at Midway Machine Technology in Zeeland as a fabricator.
