STEPS: Gospel-Centered Recovery

What Is STEPS?

STEPS is a gospel-centered resource that takes people to the root of sin and suffering and leads them to embrace the freedom found only in Christ’s redemption.  It may benefit those who suffer from serious addictions as well as those whose walks with the Lord are being hindered by their own sin or by the sin of others.

STEPS participants meet weekly for small group discussions and a video teaching.  Each participant also meets weekly with a mentor who provides gospel-centered encouragement and accountability.  Childcare is available.  The only cost is the purchase of the STEPS book, which leads each participant through daily scripture study.  This is a 13-week deep dive into scripture.  Participants are asked to commit to daily Bible study and to two meetings per week for the full semester.

What's A Mentor?

For thirteen weeks, mentors meet weekly with their participants to help them review homework and to pray with them. This is an opportunity to be used by the Lord to help a fellow believer grasp the power of the gospel to change his or her life, no matter the problems or starting point.  Mentors attend two Saturday training sessions in the fall before the spring STEPS semester, and a mentor coach is available for support and counsel throughout the semester. Many mentors have completed the STEPS program as participants.  Any serious believer may serve as a STEPS mentor. The STEPS materials are designed to help mentors keep all their sessions focused on the gospel.
