EM047 Follow Me and I'll Make You Fishers of Men with Steve Addison

Life in Ministry

Steve originally hails from Australia but is now based in London. He has a wife, Michelle, and four grown children. For the past 20 years, he's been heading up the missions agency, Move, which focuses on making disciples and planting churches.

Key Scripture

Challenge

Growing up, Steve struggled with recurring depression. At one point, he had to take some time because he'd started to question God and himself while he was in the fog of it all. He started to wonder if he was ever going to see any of the things God promised happened.

It was at that point that God revealed something to him and began to transform things.

Revelation

Current Ministry

Steve arrived in London a few months ago. Since he's been there, his focus has remained connecting with people. Being wherever the workers are.

  1. How can we pray for you?
  2. Right now, are you near or far from God?

Significance in the Marketplace

Remember that the Great Commission was given to every believer. We will have the opportunity to minister to people wherever God has us.


Speed Round

Hindsight

Steve wishes he would have known how hard it is and how good God is.

Shifts in Society

We will continue to see society shift and more people from other cultures coming. In fact, some cities are becoming largely populated with ethnic minorities. This is a great opportunity.

  • Knock on the door
  • Develop a friendship but let them know you're a follower of Jesus early on
  • Ask, “Is there anything we can pray about for you?”
  • Ask, “Are you near or far from God?”
  • If they are Muslim, ask, “Who is Isa (Jesus) to you?”
  • Ask, “Is this something you'd like to learn more about?”
  • Keep your focus on Jesus rather than trying to win an argument. Let them discover Him for themselves.

FREE BOOK

As a listener of Engaging Missions, Audible.com will give you a free audio book when you sign up for a 30-day free trial to check out their service. With over 150,000 titles to choose from, you’re sure to find one you like.

Personally, I recommend the Bible. Just about any translation. You can't go wrong to have God's word available when you're driving to work, out for a walk, or working out. It's what I did when I joined Audible over 7 years ago.
