What comes next?

That depends on the people you’ve been reaching out to over the past weeks. You now have all the tools to help them keep moving closer to Jesus. Think about where each of them is at today, and decide what your next step should be:

Congratulations! You’ve come so far. Don’t forget to tell us your stories. We’re excited to hear about your experiences!
