WHO WE ARE

Steiger is a rapidly-growing, worldwide mission organization that is called to reach and disciple the Global Youth Culture for Jesus. We do this by raising up missionaries and equipping the local church to proclaim the message of Jesus in the language of the Global Youth Culture. Steiger establishes long-term City Teams in strategic locations around the world, engaging in creative evangelism, relevant discipleship, and local church partnership.

VISION

Our vision is the constant development and seeking the opportunity to spread the Good News to as many representatives of the Global Youth Culture as possible. We want to accomplish it through establishing and reinforcing the City Teams across whole country. At present we have been in Wroclaw and Katowice. We also cooperate with Krakow and other cities. We feel the importance of partnership and oneness between the churches and the Christian ministries, that share the same vision of reaching the young generations through the Gospel. We want to connect our strength and act throughout Poland with anybody who has the same passion for Jesus!

GLOBAL YOUTH CULTURE

The current urban generation, connected by consumerism, social media, and the entertainment industry forms the largest global culture ever to exist. It spans the globe, sharing the same values, listening to the same music, watching the same movies, and sharing the same posts.
 
This global culture is largely influenced by one predominant worldview: Secular Humanism - God is irrelevant, and man is at the center. In this relativistic culture, we are god and consumerism is our religion. This is a generation that does not look to the church for answers but believes it to be a dead and empty tradition of the past. Either there is no God or, if he is there, he doesn’t interfere with our lives.

OUR RESPONSE

God’s heart is broken for this lost generation. The message of his love, the Gospel, is for everyone, and it is not right that young people today don’t get to hear because we’re not making it accessible to them. They don’t come to us, so we need to go to them. As Jesus’ church, we need to realize the massive change in mindset and lifestyle and the need for a paradigm shift in missions.
 
Our calling is to challenge the status quo of the predominant secular humanist worldview and unmask its oppressive nature. We lift up the Cross outside the church and see the message of a loving God, revealed in Jesus, infused in this globalized culture. We desire to see this generation find hope and purpose again as it meets the Creator. And through this, God will radically and eternally change the world.

VALUES

"God Re­wards Those Who Seek Him with a Des­per­ate Heart"

He­brews 11:6

The foun­da­tion of every­thing Steiger does stems from a per­son­al re­la­tion­ship with God through Je­sus Christ. Steiger ac­knowl­edges that God is the source of all au­thor­i­ty, pow­er and op­por­tu­ni­ties and that apart from the work of the Holy Spir­it, all our min­istry ef­forts will be fu­tile (John 15:5).

There­fore, pas­sion­ate­ly seek­ing God through dili­gent prayer, in-depth study of the Bible and heart­felt praise and wor­ship is Steiger's first pri­or­i­ty.

OUR HISTORY

1987

NLM’s performance in Jarocin

No Longer Music band played the first concert in Poland, at a rock festival in Jarocin. As the members weren’t allowed to give the concert on the main stage, they had played illegally away from the festival’s venue instead, what drew the attention of many people who in result believed in God. NLM have toured throughout Poland ever since. That was the festival where they started a friendship and cooperation with Malejonek and Litza, who they would tour with in Poland several times later.
