Mattheus's

journey

Mattheus van der Steen’s journey is a remarkable testament to his unwavering commitment to faith, service, and supernatural encounters. Born in 1975 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, his life took a profound turn when he embarked on his maritime education at just 17 years old. Little did he know that this would be the beginning of an extraordinary adventure.

Upon completing his maritime studies, Mattheus embarked on a career as a Maritime Officer. 

However, the course of his life changed dramatically during a day off while participating in a Youth With A Mission (YWAM) outreach in a South African slum. On that day, the Holy Spirit touched his heart, calling him into full-time missions.

In 1999, he answered this divine calling and partnered with Derek Prince and the Bridge to bring aid and hope to war-torn Kosovo. Amidst the chaos, Mattheus’s ministry witnessed the touch of God’s glory, resulting in countless miracles, signs, wonders, and salvations that ignited the hearts of villagers and city-dwellers alike.

Indelible mark of transformation

As the years unfolded, Mattheus received a vision from the Lord for Europe. He established various impactful ministries and events, including “Heaven on Earth,” weekly “Fire-Nights,” “Mission Possible,” “Harvest Nights,” and Gospel Music Festivals. His reach extended to closed nations like India, North and South Korea, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Pakistan, and many others, leaving an indelible mark of transformation.

In 2008, Myanmar experienced a supernatural encounter like no other when Mattheus’s ministry became a vessel for the Holy Spirit to touch 10,000 people simultaneously. This incredible event marked the beginning of a powerful revival that has since touched thousands upon thousands during campaigns across Myanmar.

Mattheus also founded the “Revival Alliance Netherlands” (now known as Harvest Fields Network) in 2008 and, in 2011, the “House of Heroes” family church, where he served as Senior Pastor for 14 years. In 2016, he launched the “School of Supernatural Heroes,” dedicated to training individuals in living a supernatural lifestyle. His written works, including the bestselling “Dare to Dream,” have inspired many on their spiritual journeys.

In 2020, Mattheus’s commitment to global evangelism led him to join the Europe Shall Be Saved Core Team (esbs.org) and the Global Evangelism Alliance (GEA). He organized “Awakening Europe Netherlands,” making significant strides in spreading the message of salvation.

Recent years

In 2023, Mattheus and Laura hosted and organized “Empowered 2023” in Amsterdam, gathering thousands of global leaders around the world to unite under the banner of the Great Commission.

Responding to a divine call in 2022, Mattheus and Laura relocated to the United States of America, where they established a mission base in partnership with Engaging Heaven Church and CFAN. They now reside in Florida, USA, with their children, Zephaniah, Justice, Destiny, and Chloe, along with their two cherished cats.

Mattheus is not only a passionate minister but also an accomplished author, with titles including “Dare to Dream” (a bestseller), “Dare to Live,” “Never Ever Give Up,” “The Process”, and “The Power of Jesus’ Blood Covenant.” His life and work continue to inspire countless individuals worldwide as they embrace the supernatural and the call to change lives through faith.

Mattheus van der Steen is a major pioneer in world evangelism. He goes to places that few others would consider going to preach the gospel; even into war-torn areas. He is a man of great courage and integrity. Mattheus is recognized by top world Christian leaders as one of the top young influencers in existence today.

When I think of couples that God is using mightily in the world today, people who have a uniquely powerful and authentic voice to their generation, Mattheus and Laura van der Steen are at the top of that list. They have been dear, personal and faithful friends to me and my family for a long time, as they were to Reinhard Bonnke (who founded our ministry). Their relentless dedication to sharing the Gospel through Harvest Fields International, in challenging, unreached areas is nothing short of inspiring. Mattheus' Kingdom-minded leadership and Laura's gifted relational skills combine to form a dynamic force for good. I wholeheartedly endorse their ministry, a beacon of hope and transformation, as they touch countless lives, heal hearts, and bring the light of Christ to dark corners of the world. Partnering with Harvest Fields International means investing in eternal impact, and I am privileged to stand with them in this extraordinary journey of faith. May their passion for the Great Commission ignite your own faith and commitment to advancing God's kingdom.

Mattheus van der Steen is a tenacious and passionate man of God. I love his childlike faith that leads him to make bold decisions for the sake of the gospel. When Holy Spirit speaks, he moves… no matter what, no matter where. As he launches Harvest Fields International, he is building upon a rich legacy and spiritual history with the Lord. I believe, through this ministry, many people will be trained and equipped to step into their own callings with this same bold faith that Mattheus and his team walk in. Spend time with Mattheus and you will definitely be encouraged, inspired and ready for more of God.

I have known Matt and his wife Laura closely for the last 8 years, and every time I see what they are doing for God I am excited. I am excited because they are stewarding the great gifts God gave them and using them to build up the global Church into a passionate Jesus focused people. The experience and history of walking in faith to see thousands saved in large crusades across the world, as well as their hunger to help people experience the Holy Spirit is second to none. I am thrilled they have started this new ministry and highly recommend them to anyone who is seeking them out, it will be a great blessing to you are your people.

The moment I’ve met Mattheus Van der Steen, I immediately saw the strong call of God in his life for this generation. He is part of this new anointed leader shaving a breakthrough anointing to bring the Kingdom of Heaven with a demonstration of power to territories and especially the closest one. Knowing Mattheus since many years, being my very close friend considering as my twin brother, I’ve seen how God is using him in front of big crowd but also how he fought the good fight of faith when he was passing through hell.

Johannes Hartl

Director of Augsburg House of Prayer, Germany
Mattheus van der Steen and his team of passionate missionaries have served the great commandment faithfully and with great impact in many nations. These are fierce pioneers who don’t hesitate to undergo dire circumstances in order to see souls won for the gospel.
