Is NEXT STEPS your next right step?

During this program, it was not a country or nation that took hold of my heart, but it was individual souls that one by one embedded themselves into the depths of my heart. It truly is such an amazing and indescribable experience to shift your burden for a country into a burden for a people. And because of this, I will never be the same.

2019 Next Steps: New Zealand

I felt the call to missions, but it seemed out of reach. Next Steps made missions tangible, and I realized it is more than possible! You don’t have to be the most talented; you just have to be willing to serve. This program is amazing and it is  making missions a reality for those who may need a bit of a boost moving forward.
