Steve and Melissa Gross
Steve and Melissa Gross and their four children, Caleb, Hannah, Samuel, and Sarah, are in their sixth year of serving the Lord at Cowman International School on the edge of Cap Haitien, Haiti’s second largest city. Cowman is a Christ-centered school, seeking to strengthen the minds and spirits of students and their families in the hope of multiplying lifetimes of service to the Lord across Haiti. Small and faithful over the last 50 years, Cowman has grown exponentially recently, from 23 students in 2010 to its current enrollment of more than 180. In the same time span, the Haitian faculty has grown from 2 to 25. Although limited to the grade school years through most of its history, Cowman will now see its first class of high school graduates in 2019.
While in the process of earning her master’s in Education and Administration, Melissa serves Cowman as director, overseeing academic progress, teacher training, and curriculum development for the entire school, from the 3-year-olds to seniors. Holding a master of divinity from Asbury Seminary, Steve serves as the junior high Bible teacher and co-chair of the Spiritual Life Committee, as well as the 7th through 12th grade English teacher.
Steve and Melissa thoroughly enjoy teaching God’s Word and ministering to and with students and coworkers at Cowman. Having spent years in youth ministry and public education in their home state of Indiana, the Grosses consider it a great blessing to now live and serve in Haiti.
