Before God led us to begin Next Step, we enjoyed serving as an assistant pastor at El Vista Baptist Church in Peoria, IL. Our last Sunday on staff, this video was played. It has little to do with Next Step other than giving insight to the history of the director (and an opportunity for him to be nostalgic!).
Many of the young men pictured in this video are fatherless, and through our ministry at El Vista our burden for guys in this situation grew.
