Steve & Kayla Binnquist, YWAM San Francisco
Steve began working with YWAM San Francisco in 2004, Kayla started in 2010, and the two married in 2013. Since January 2017, they have led Restoration Initiatives, a ministry dedicated to restoring, empowering, and serving residents of San Francisco’s Tenderloin.
The Restoration Initiatives program seeks to:
- Restore people to God, their families and others
- Empower them to contribute to society with tools for pursuing work, employment, and housing
- Serve them practically through prayer, intentional relationship, free haircuts, access to showers, and accompaniment to hospital, court and rehabilitation appointments.
Steve and Kayla welcomed their son Oliver in 2015, who spends his time making the world a better place through laughter and funny noises. You can connect with them through email.
