“And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.”

Mark 6:34 KJV

No matter what kind of childhood, economical level, or present condition, people have an intuitive nature to strive for a better life. Jesus, saw that people were ignorant of spiritual matters and needed a teacher and compassionate instruction. Stepping Out believes that there are many ways we can express compassion, first by attending to the pressing physical and spiritual needs, but then by giving equal importance to educate and equip people with the emotional skills to triumph over inexperience, immaturity, and inability to control their lives.

Stepping Out, Inc is a faith-based 501 C 3 organization which works to create a pattern of positive behavior by equipping individuals and families to achieve emotional, spiritual, and physical growth through life-skills education. We advocate for adults to rise above adversity and take ownership of their future and for parents to become the positive role models for our next generation.

Stepping Out makes available a portfolio of curriculum specifically chosen because it encourages a new paradigm of positive thinking and contributes to making a stronger, more secure and dedicated workforce and citizenry of our community and in God’s Kingdom.

Testimony by F.L.

The Stepping Out program has helped me in so many ways. Before I started this class, I was hid in a shell of self-doubt, pity, and years of with-drawl. I started the class and my life changed. Now, I forgive people who have wronged me and most of all I changed my attitude about life.

Life is much better when you stop thinking negatively. I always thought negatively. I still do to a point, but I changed my attitude and the problems changed. I now feel as if I have a new family who really cares about me and my life. They have helped me be a great person. People will always have change in their life but with this program it helps to teach us a different and positive way to look at it.

I hope and pray that this will continue for many years to come. Thank you to all the Stepping Out people who care about God and people.
