About the Speaker

Steve Torgerson grew up in Fairmont, MN. He met his wife, Merrilee, through the Campus Crusade for Christ ministry at the U of MN. Upon graduation, they married and Steve began preparing for cross-cultural ministry at Fuller Seminary (M. Div.) and years later earned his doctorate at Trinity International Univ.

The Torgersons initially served with the Ev. Free Church as church planters in Hong Kong (1983-1995). After moving to Taiwan, Steve helped found a new ministry called Systematic Asian Leadership Training (SALT) in 1996.

In 2020, after 37 years in Asia and many, many remarkable experiences of God at work in his church, the Torgersons moved from Hong Kong to Minnesota. They have two married sons and seven grandchildren living in the US. Their married daughter has two children and is the STEM coach at an international school in Amman, Jordan.

Steve is an avid Twins fan, loves hiking, is learning about gardening and together, they are figuring out how to adjust to Minnesota winters.
