Growing in Empathy for Youth feat. Aaron Pierce
Aaron Pierce is the Executive Director of Steiger International, a global mission organization that is called to reach and disciple the Global Youth Culture for Jesus. He also co-leads the Lausanne Movement’s new initiative on Global Secularization. Growing up as a missionary kid in Amsterdam, Aaron often saw hope brought to the city. He witnessed this mainly through the evangelistic punk rock band his dad founded, No Longer Music. Aaron also co-leads the Lausanne Movement’s new initiative on Global Secularization.
We recorded this conversation a while ago (in an airport… for unique sound effects) and have held onto it for the right time. Steiger International has many different avenues to reach youth. At the root of it all, they know how community is vital for people to experience Jesus. We’re all in need of a dose of hope in our lives right now and this episode is sure to do just that.
In this episode with Aaron, you will:
- Discover Aaron’s story of how he joined the mission his parents started – Steiger 14.
- Grasp how Steiger International creates a place for youth to connect and experience a self-sacrificing community.
- Learn how the strategy to reach students is not a strategy at all (the 5 steps to reach Gen Z isn’t where we should start).
- Hear Aaron’s favorite story of a hip-hop artist coming to know Christ in São Paulo.
