If you feel like you don’t fit in or you know someone who feels like that, this is the perfect episode to listen to!!
Philip Shorey comes from a 4-generation family of unique international puppeteer evangelists, who used the art of marionette to spread the gospel of Jesus around the world. He is a seasoned musical composer and the founder of Suitcase Sideshow-which is a fringe theater that brings a message of hope to the far corners of the world and the author of Kill Your Art-a book based on how to surrender your art to God to be used in a ministry context.
Philip is also the director of the Minnesota base of Steiger International (www.steiger.org), a worldwide mission organization that is called to reach and disciple the Global Youth Culture for Jesus. In his teen years he walked away from God, bored of the family ministry, and pursued his dreams of rock and roll. God called him back, he met his lovely wife, Sari, and the rest is history. You will be intrigued as Philip shares his unique life story and how doors have opened in the most unusual places for Suitcase Sideshow to minister all over the world. The ministry that God does through Philip and his family is a prime example of Luke 10:2-“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers in his harvest field.”
