School of Ministry
Are you ready to STEP OUT into a greater way of living? Encounter God more intimately and help others encounter Him more as you get a greater understanding of what it looks like to be sons and daughters of God and have the chance to apply what you are learning. These events are helping individuals and the body of Christ to live a lifestyle of supernatural ministry and also bringing in the harvest!
Is your church interested in having the Stepping Out Team bring the Stepping Out Interactive Conference to your city?
FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN BRING STEPPING OUT MINISTRIES TO YOUR AREA!
We are a faith-based nonprofit ministry. This means all of our support comes through those that give to our ministry as they feel led by the Lord and everything we do is by faith. We desire to be a blessing to other ministries/churches and help strengthen the church to live a lifestyle of evangelism which is what we are ALL called to do. We treat each trip as a mission trip which means that every team member that comes raises their funds and comes with a heart to serve with a heart of excellence. In return, we ask a few things from those hosting this event.
There is a $500.00 nonrefundable deposit. This helps cover minor expenses on our end to help you put on this event. This is nonrefundable for several reasons. If the event were canceled for any reason and not rescheduled we lose out on time and material already invested in the event. This deposit also helps bring down the costs for us to come as a team since this is the ONLY thing we charge. This deposit is required the moment we agree on dates and lock those dates in.
Direct communication with the person overseeing the event.
The ministry hosting the event will provide the facility and the means to make the event possible. This would include but not limited to: Sound, lights, possible video, chairs, tables, and laborers to run all of this.
The ministry hosting the event will try to provide a worship team and if they don't have one we can see what we can do.
This is not mandatory but if possible host homes provided. This is a huge help to us keeping costs down but we also understand that not every ministry can do this. We usually come with a team of anywhere from 5-8 people.
Willing to take love offering during the evening sessions. These funds go directly into the ministry and help us in future conferences and mission trips we do.
The ministries hosting the event will take care of all their expenses to promote the event in their area. There are a few things Stepping Out will provide to help.
We highly suggest the hosting ministry to charge a small fee for those participating in the event. The suggested cost to be $25.00. This money goes directly to the ministry hosting NOT to Stepping Out. We have found this gets people more committed as they now have something invested in it. You might even offer scholarships to those that can't afford it but show a high interest in coming.
We strongly suggest that every ministry/church participating has something set up at their church to continue with the efforts of equipping and sending people after they have gone through our conference. Maybe regular training and/or regular opportunities for community outreach. We also suggest a follow-up program for those that receive Christ during our outreach.
We would like the opportunity to sell some of our resources (Shirts/books/armbands) if possible.
We do not have a required amount of people to sign up for the conference but we do suggest a minimum of 25. We suggest inviting other churches and ministry leaders. Remember we are doing community outreach and what a great opportunity for the body of Christ to come together and reach the community.
Stepping Outs commitment:
We are committed to adhering to the vision of the ministry hosting the event.
We come with a heart to serve and it is our desire to serve the local churches and Pastors of the community with a heart of excellence.

We are committed to our own local church and committed to keeping ourselves under proper covering as God uses us and this ministry worldwide.
INTERACTIVE CONFERENCE SCHEDULE SAMPLE
What's unique about our conferences is that they are interactive. Those that participate will have an opportunity to apply what they are learning during the teaching sessions and they will be sent out 3 different times to do city outreach.
Description: Come ready to abandon yourself as we spend time in God's presence in worship, the word, prophetic ministry, and whatever else happens!
8:00am -8:30am: Doors open
9:00am-9:30am: Session one: What's love got to do with it.
Description: Learn the importance of a life filled with love. True Jesus' ministry is not real if it's not done in love because God IS love!
9:45am-12:00pm: Session two: Hearing the voice of God part 1
Description: Many times we hear God's voice more than we think. In this interactive session, we will learn and practice different ways God speaks to AND through us so we can live a lifestyle of being the voice of God on this earth!

Description: Breaking old mindsets of what this looks like and bringing a clearer understanding of what discipleship is and how important it is. Our goal is NOT to get people to say a prayer but to make disciples!

*Please note the schedule is subject to change due to weather conditions and also to the ministry hosting the event’s convenience. Typically the conference is Thursday night, Friday all day, and part of Saturday. We are also available to minister in churches on Sunday and that is optional. We usually will stay and attend church while we are there for relationship purposes anyways. Again, we adjust this schedule according to culture and requests from those hosting the event. Each participant is responsible for their own meals during the event unless the ministry hosting decides to provide.
