Steiger International is a christian organisation that is focused on reaching the youth in non-churched environments.


It emerged from the activities of David Pierce among punks in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in the 1980ies, and his music band “No Longer Music”. In 2008 there are bases in the United Kingdom, Poland, Germany, Brazil, the United States and New Zealand.

In the beginning, the meetings took place on a houseboat which address was Steiger 14 (Dutch for pier 14), this name was kept for all bases and the organisation.
