    Step Beyond as a Missional Resource

    Step Beyond is produced locally – specifically for outreach and distribution/sharing in the secular Australian context. It is “Steps to Christ” with a redesign.  The new title and cover have been tested and proven to have greater community appeal than other imported Steps to Christ / Steps to Jesus books.  Readers found that the Step Beyond title and cover makes it easier for members to make genuine connections before introducing people to the message of the book, taking the user on a deeper journey and connection to Jesus.

    The book, “Step Beyond“, is “Steps to Christ” but with a new cover design. It has been affordably priced at $0.80 for everyone to be able to engage in this missional effort and help bring some joy back into this world.
