Is NEXT STEPS your next right step?

I wasn’t confident in the giftings God has placed in me throughout my entire life. Now, I know, that as long as I am willing, He will use me in whatever capacity I make myself available to be used. I am in an “in-between” phase at the time being, but I am not afraid. Next Steps gave me direction in the fact that I can grow where God has planted me, and that He will place me in my “next step” in His perfect timing. I do not fear.

2018 Next Steps: Tanzania

I would recommend Next Steps to anyone interested in missions because it is a safe place to immerse yourself in a field without the fear of being left alone not knowing what to do. The team of mentors and friends you gain from the experience is invaluable.

I was abundantly blessed by this experience and I believe that greater things are in store for this program!
