We encourage each Step applicant to meet a specific financial target for their time away. This amount is a contribution towards the cost of running the Step programme and your participation in it. We do not want the personal financial contribution to be a stumbling block for anyone keen to serve in Latin America; therefore we look to support those who may find it genuinely difficult to meet this target.

My experience in Guatemala was so incredible; it was nothing I could’ve been prepared for. God has shown me what it is to truly rely on his goodness through the amazing people I’ve met, who, through their serving hearts have shown me what it’s like to do everything for God’s glory.

My favourite part of Step is how every person you meet impacts you in different ways. You might think the main reason you’re going out there is to help people in need, but most of the time, they are helping you. They demonstrate exactly what it’s like to live an honest and humble life in Christ, whilst being the happiest people you will ever meet. I genuinely am so thankful for seeing this with my own eyes.
