SMS 2017

This summer, over 100 students and volunteers from 20 countries attended the Steiger Missions School in Germany. They are the next generation of dynamic, creative Steiger missionaries who will reach the Global Youth Culture for Jesus!

Don’t Be a Hypocrite!

Ask anyone on the street what their biggest problem with Christians is and many will undoubtedly respond, “They’re all hypocrites!” Scathing accusations are hurled against the cornered believer: “Love your neighbor, huh?! Christians are the first ones to cut me off in traffic!”

David speaking at Provoke&Inspire Seminar in Colombia

I just returned from the crazy and dangerous city of Bogotá, Colombia, with Chad Johnson and my son Ben, where we had a Provoke & Inspire conference designed to challenge Christian artists to use their God-given creativity to proclaim the Gospel outside the church.

Students at the SMS are engaged in some of Steiger’s front line missionary work: participating in music and artistic tours and events; going to some of Europe’s largest art and music festivals; and being part of the local youth scene in European cities.

We have a family motto: “Good and hard always go together.” I heard this all the time growing up. Maybe it doesn’t seem like such a revolutionary thought, but this simple concept has had an enormous impact on my life.
