International Leadership Team

The purpose of the Steiger International Leadership Team is to direct Steiger's overall vision, guide the strategic direction, provide pastoral care and intercede on behalf of those in Steiger.

David Pierce


In the early 1980s, at the height of the European punk rock movement, David Pierce started a Bible study on a barge (called Steiger 14) behind Central Station in Amsterdam, Holland reaching disenfranchised young people of that city. It was there that David started a band called "No Longer Music" (NLM) to use as a tool to communicate the Gospel of Jesus to these young people who would never step foot into a church.

Jodi Pierce


Jodi is the co-founder of Steiger. In addition to her international leadership responsibilities, Jodi leads the Steiger Missions School in Krögis, Germany - a school that provides students from all over the world with the strong spiritual and practical foundations necessary for a lifetime of missionary service.

Jodi, along with her husband David, raised two children on the edge of the red-light district in Amsterdam. In her book "Something Broken, Something Extraordinary", Jodi talks about her decision to leave the familiarity of home and follow God and about the extraordinary life to which that led. Although her life was not without difficulty, Jodi describes her journey with God as the richest life imaginable.

In addition to such projects, Luke often speaks sharing the vision of Steiger in churches and conferences and teaches each year at the Steiger Missions School on the topics of evangelism and discipleship in the Global Youth Culture.
