Next Step Ministries

About Next Step Ministries

Next Step Ministries is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to helping students grow closer to Christ through a life-changing, one-week mission trip. Students have the opportunity to work on challenging construction projects and come alongside inspiring community leaders, meeting the true needs of the community.

Each project is picked with an unwavering commitment to partnering with and empowering families, schools, and the local church. These projects are a part of a much larger vision of transformation producing real, sustainable change within a community. We work on these projects week after week, year after year, so students know they’re part of a real change.

Students are immersed into the culture and life of a community, meeting people who help them see God from a completely new perspective. Their faith will be confronted and their eyes will be opened as they watch God move in a new and unfamiliar environment.


Hospitality Leader

January 2019 - August 2019 Lorain, OH
“I love the people I met, and I loved seeing how much work we could accomplish together. ”

Construction Site Supervisor

May 2019 - August 2019 Colorado Springs, CO
“I loved being on a team with 9 other people my age and working in Colorado. It was awesome leading work sites and definitely helped me decide that doing something with Construction was something I wanted to do. Very hands-on experience and very rewarding seeing projects come together. The cool thing about Next Step is that they're a nonprofit organization, so all of our construction projects were for home owners that didn't have enough money to afford new things. And we also got to do work for various businesses who were trying to help out the community. You definitely feel like you've made a difference.”
