Outfitting you with skills to fulfill God’s calling in life
Advanced STEP is training in leadership skills, confidence building, Biblical Studies, Wilderness Care and Survival, Crisis Counseling, Evangelism, and Public Speaking. For ladies wanting adventure and excitement, we will be coupling this training with outdoor skills such as: hiking, rustic camping, canoeing a swift water river, and rock climbing. The heart of the training will be centered on the book of Ephesians through study and memorization.
The course will be taking place simultaneously with STEP and opportunities for the application of ministry skills will be provided through interaction with the ladies attending the STEP program. There will also be service projects that will put into practice the training learned. Don’t miss this opportunity to exemplify Christ to those around you!
“Coming to Advanced STEP I was looking forward to renewing friendships I made last year, and also creating new friendships. I almost forgot how much energy you must have to get you through the day—whether it’s getting up at 5am every morning or making sure you don’t fall behind in saying your verses. It’s hard work with all these things going on (and much more), and it would be very easy to feel stressed and exhausted if it wasn’t for all the time you get to spend with God. At home it’s so hard to spend time with God, but here God is in everything we do! Yes, the personal devotions are great, but it’s the fact that everything we do relates back to God. That really motivated and inspired me to rely more on God like all of our leaders and class teachers. That’s probably the biggest thing God has been teaching me: to know and trust God in all things, and to have the joy of the Lord.” —Carrie O. STEP Advanced 2008 Participant
