Some of you must be unfamiliar with the newest effort of Next Generation Ministries branded ONE STEP. And, you may be wondering ... from the last post ... what is going on with those people who want to travel all the way from Jinja to Tanzania to preach the Gospel?
Let me explain. No ... let me sum up!
ONE STEP is an intercultural, residential, mentoring effort centered in Jinja, Uganda. Founded and directed by the leaders of Next Generation Ministries, this effort focuses on encouraging, equipping, and empowering those enrolled by building three foundations in their lives.
- IDENTITY - Who am I?
- PURPOSE - Why am I here?
- VISION - Where am I going?
At ONE STEP we declare, "Life is a journey, but it is taken one step at a time." The request we made, of each of those enrolled in this course, is that they allow us to take one step with them in their journey. We believe we will assist them in their development to become the kind of powerful people they were meant to be who change the world and shake the planet for the glory of God.
One of our goals is to prepare these young men and women to think globally. We believe that they should demonstrate and proclaim the good news of the grace of God across the street and around the world. The Bible tells us that we are to go into all the world and preach the gospel. We want to prepare them for Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost parts of the earth.
The command of Jesus to His followers was to GO ... this initial class of ONE STEP has the opportunity to go. Both locally and globally.
We request that you be a part of this goal to get those enrolled in the ONE STEP Course to think globally. Please contribute any amount. Yesterday we passed the $1,000 mark! We are a third of the way to our goal. Please assist us in our mentoring by making this short term mission possible.
