It may appear as though this website is not updated very often - and this is true. It is my hope that eventually our website will become a powerful resource for guys growing up without fathers and for those who care about them. However, at this time the website serves primarily as an introduction to Next Step and a place to gain more information than is printed in one of our brochures. It also provides a way for people to apply for our services or contact us.
For those interested in more frequent updates on Next Step and thoughts from me, the founder and director, please visit our facebook page.

In case you're wondering... Next Step is growing slowly, but surely. I have been blessed to have been promoted to 3rd shift supervisor at Peoria Charter Coach. This has given me wonderful flexibility during the day time and allows me to spend time almost every week one-on-one with three fatherless young men. We have continued to host monthly prayer meetings and look forward to training our first group of mentors in February of this year (2013).
Please remember to pray for fatherless boys and men and for me and my family as we seek to follow the Lord's direction in this ministry. I will update this blog from time to time, but since our facebook audience is much larger than our website's audience you'll find the most current posts on facebook.
