We had a virtual retreat in March 2022 where we introduced the ministry and shared resources to help Next Steppers connect, grow, and multiply in their spiritual walk. The resources include: discipleship tool, missions prayer group, kingdom builder ministry, digital missions, and missions education.

What is Next Step?

Next Step is CMC’s post-conference ministry. You may have felt God’s calling at CMC and you might be wondering how to take the next step. The Next Step ministry is here to help you to grow spiritually throughout the year. We invite you to join the Next Step ministry!

1) CONNECT: Through monthly/bi-weekly one-on-one meetings, you will be able to connect with a caregiver or mentor who will walk alongside your spiritual journey. In the spring and fall, we have a retreat where you can connect with other like-minded people.

2) GROW: We will help you to reach your faith commitment goals. Your caregiver will help you develop a personal disciple-making plan. We also recommend different resources to help you to grow.

3) MULTIPLY: As you grow in your spiritual maturity, you will fulfill the Great Commission to make disciples locally and globally.

The Next Step journey is unique to each person: 
1) You make a faith commitment at CMC and let the Next Step team know that you’re interested in joining the program. 
2) A trained caregiver will initially contact you. Throughout the year, you will connect with a caregiver as an accountability partner.
3) For the next 6 months and beyond, you will explore opportunities to grow spiritually. Your caregiver will encourage and walk alongside you.
4) Finally, the Next Step team will celebrate your spiritual growth.
