About the Author
David Pierce is the founder and executive director of Steiger. He is a gifted proclamation evangelist, dynamic speaker and visionary. 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. Since then, David has taken the message of Jesus to some of the darkest corners of society, including closed Islamic countries, terrorist clubs, squatter villages, anarchy festivals, brothels, junkie joints, punk & goth music festivals, Satanist clubs and New Age gatherings. David has seen many thousands find Jesus and his efforts have served as a catalyst for a wave of new ministries, churches and missionaries that have grown into a global, interconnected missions organization called “Steiger International”. Steiger is called to reach and disciple the "secularized global youth culture" for Jesus. In recent years, David has been able to penetrate and effectively reach "globalized Middle Eastern youth", a demographic of millions of young (17-35 years of age), educated and highly influential people across the Middle East who have become increasingly influenced by globalization and engaged in the global network of communication, music, art and media. In addition, David is committed to bringing powerful teaching to those inside the church. Each year, David preaches in churches, conferences, and colleges all around the world sharing about this bold and cutting-edge ministry and opening opportunities for Christians to more seriously commit their lives to reaching the lost at home and around the world. David’s story is a strong catalyst for action in the Christian community and for the work that God wants to do in the hearts of young people everywhere.
