Steven is an international speaker, activist, musician and avid follower of the Jesus Way. Having traveled to over 60 countries and witnessing along the way the best and worst that humanity is capable of, Steve’s driving passion is to champion and equip the body of Christ for active peacemaking & works of justice through building compassion for the poor and provoking imagination.

Max and Cambria Melchert, originally from the States, have made Cape Town home since 2013. Working with YWAM Muizenberg and giving leadership to A Life Together, their vision is to train and release young leaders into their God-given passions and into deeper relationship with Christ.
A LIFE TOGETHER is an ever growing network of friends and ministries, vagabonds and vagrants, sinners and saints alike who are in the pursuit of a life shaped by the mercy of God. Birthed and rooted in the margins of Cape Town, South Africa within the wider body of YWAM, Muizenberg, we are a collective of voices from many corners of the world all seeking to live into God’s dream of a reconciled world!
