Sean Steckbeck is a missionary and church planter in Israel. He often uses the “Person of Peace” framework for evangelism and discipleship and is seeing multiplication in house churches and discipleship that is beyond his ability to count. In this week’s interview he shares a little about that and also some
I’ve known Sean since he was in high school, which was actually a much darker time in my life. Since then God has been very good to me and Sean has stepped out into full-time ministry. In this week’s interview, he shares a number of great insights that have formed how he’s ministering to people now. And he also shares some news that stands in stark contrast to what we often see on the news.
striking stories of God’s faithfulness throughout his ministry.

Sean shares a time when God intervened in an amazing way as he and his family were returning to Israel.
Sean shares one key question that God used to really shake him to his core as he and his family were approaching burnout in the ministry. And then he shares how his perspective has changed since that time.
Yeshua deserves the obedience of the nations. He deserves my obedience. [icon type=”fa-twitter” color=”#161616″ size=”24px”]
It’s not about ministry success; it’s about my worship to Him. [icon type=”fa-twitter” color=”#161616″ size=”24px”]
Obedience is worship. [icon type=”fa-twitter” color=”#161616″ size=”24px”]
I don’t see ministry as work. I see it as worship [icon type=”fa-twitter” color=”#161616″ size=”24px”]
Sean spent over two years researching the ministry model that they have been using since about 2007. It’s simple, biblical, and is growing exponentially. And the results defy what we see on the evening news; Jews and Arabs are ministering to each other.

Person of Peace
Sean shares how the Person of Peace model that they are using is different from traditional evangelistic methods. In his words, evangelism is transformed into a treasure hunt where the treasure is finding the person who God is already preparing.
And the wonderful thing about this model is that it isn’t specific to “global” missions. Instead, it is something that can be, and is being, applied wherever we are, wherever God has called us. Even if we’re called to the marketplace.
Sean shares two things that really encourage missionaries while they’re on the mission field.
- My identity is in Christ and not in the ministry. [icon type=”fa-twitter” color=”#161616″ size=”16px”]
- Best Advice
- Love and bless your enemies. [icon type=”fa-twitter” color=”#161616″ size=”16px”]
- Something someone did to support
- Every letter of encouragement is like water to his soul.
Personal Success Habit
- Pray, pray, pray
- Meditating on what it means that Yeshua (Jesus) is King in his life and what that means to those around him.
Sean shares what he would do with his family the first 2-3 days if he found himself in a new country. And then what he would do the next few days.
Meditate on Yeshua as King. On what it means. Every day.
