Selvin & Laurie Maaz

Harvest Bible University

Selvin and Laurie Maaz-Luther and thier family work with Harvest Bible University.  Selvin is the director of the Bible University for Guatemala and is also overseeing campuses in El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua.  In Guatemala Harvest campuses are operating in San Juan Ostuncalco, near Xela, and Huehuetenango.  Selvin visits these campuses regularly to teach Saturday seminars and oversee student’s progress.

The Maaz family began planting a church in the spring of 2014.  Iglesia Biblica Vida Abundante (IBIVA) continues to meet in the Maazes home ministering to several families.  We have been encouraged lately to have several new family members join us from the families who have been attending.

Selvin has begun to study Law at the national university with hopes of using it in ministry to help those who are oppressed and whose rights are being violated.   Justice has always been a strong value for Selvin and now he is finding ways to put that value into practice.

As a family we continue to minister to various people and families as the need arises from immediate temporary housing, to loans for jail bail, to taking people to emergency medical appointments.


“Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.
Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God,
till I declare your power to the next generation,
your mighty acts to all who are to come.”

Psalm 71:17-18
