From Disaster To Disciple Making (w/ Tom & Suzi Steele) – Episode 239

Tom and Suzi Steele were on a much-needed vacation in Virginia Beach, trying to recover from a difficult season of pandemic-related ministry. They received an unexpected phone call that shook them to the core. A severe thunderstorm produced a strike of lightning that hit their church steeple. The result was a fire that burned the church to the ground, so much for a relaxing vacation.

Today’s 95Podcast features a conversation with Tom & Suzi discussing the impact of the catastrophic effects of the fire. They also update us on how the church is doing today and how they processed these events.

Key Takeaways

1) After much prayer and a long walk on the beach, Tom & Suzi felt that the current season of leading Iowa City Church was over. . . It was over. However, it was not like they expected.

2) There comes a time when you must get apart before you fall apart.

3) Today, more than ever, we have a solid understanding that the church is not a building. The church is a group of people committed to serving Jesus and each other even in the most difficult situations.

4) True discipleship creates disciples who learn to disciple others.
