Steve & Barb Molsee
- Our Local

- Our Self
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 misled 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. Steve recently began an after-school Bible Club at Roberts, as well. Barb works in the adolescent wing of State Hospital South, an institution for mental patients.
The Molsees were instrumental in establishing Old Faithful Christian Ranch in Island Park, Idaho and served there over 20 years. Steve facilitates the Upper Valley Ministers Group in the Upper Snake River Valley and serves on the committee of Eastern Idaho Pastors Coalition. He serves as president of the Board of Directors of Jefferson County Release Time, a ministry that is in a formative stage and will bring the gospel to High School students in the 2019-2020 school year.
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.
