Steve and Julie Kramer serve as the associate pastors of Damascus Road and head up the Damascus Road University Ministry (DR:UM) in Maastricht. Steve’s life is one miraculous story. When he was born with Cerebral Palsy, doctors said he would never walk, yet God has worked a wonder in his life. Steve has a background in media, working as a TV news reporter/anchor for CBS News. However, the true passion of his life is reaching people with the love of Jesus. Julie worked at an orphanage in Mexico before she met Steve in 2005. Steve and Julie have two children, Kees and Sela.
