The STEP Forward Life Institute™ is an online life education and ministry preparation platform. S.T.E.P. = Success Through Experience and Process, and we provide practical instruction that equips you to add to your faith, embrace your unique process of success, and make certain you're prepared for those once in a lifetime opportunities to holistically support your family and serve in your community.
In Life Education, God is your source. Experience is your case study. Faith is your evidence. Success is your credential.
Our Life Education model guides students through their unique PROCESS, which releases God's SUCCESS in the fulfillment of their hopes and dreams of helping people.
We define Life Education as the God-sent wisdom and insight that one gains from experience and instruction, leading to growth and development in all dimensions of life: Spiritual, Physical, Social, Intellectual, Emotional, Mental, Occupational, Financial, and Environmental.
1.) In the STEP Forward Life Education model, spiritual growth and maturity are set at the core of one’s life, with all other dimensions of wellness emanating from, revolving around, and strengthened by a spiritual (Faith) center.
2.) In the STEP Forward Ministy Preparation model, your education is like a prospectus document that outlines something that doesn't exist, and describes what it will become. Your ministry preparation is the same. It is not merely projecting an academic goal, business proposal, white paper, or mission statement, but it is a life development philosophy, that trains and prepares you to release God's solutions in real time, to real people, in the real world, and set yourself apart as an effective and creative contributor to your family and community's success.
Professors Chris and Carol Green are the visionaries behind STEP Forward. As affiliate members and International Statesmen of iChange Nations™, they partnered with United Graduate College and Seminary International to offer accelerated, ministry-accredited certificate courses.
Their collaborative purpose and mission has been, to offer leaders, working in under-served communities, high-quality tools that empower and equip them to be more effective in their humanitarian efforts.
