CEM exists to start new church-planting churches by recruiting and developing church planters, supporters and leaders, in order to spread God's Word to all.
New CEM Director of Development - Suzi Steele
CEM welcomes Suzi Steele, as our new Director of Development. Suzi brings a background in ministry, discipleship, and nonprofit management, with experience in directing operations, marketing, and fundraising development within the faith-based nonprofit sector. She is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership and Nonprofit Management, with special focus on Funding Development, and
looks forward to applying this knowledge to further CEM’s vision and mission in Iowa.
Suzi and husband, Tom, live in Iowa City and have a son, Alex, attending Ozark Christian College, and a daughter, Samantha, in high school. They have enjoyed 25 years of marriage and ministry together, with 15 of those years at Iowa City Church of Christ (a CEM church plant), where Tom is lead pastor. The Steele family is firmly invested in church health and growth in Iowa and feel blessed to be a part of this worthy mission.
